Hello, I'm new to this forum. Can you please help me solve the puzzle? I've been reeding through as many posts as I could find on the subject and only got more confused after reading them all. My question is: are Medalist cornets made after RMC bankruptcy in 1963 in Fullerton and Abilene essentially different level of quality instruments? Which are better and what makes them different? I got an impression that people favour the Fullerton made ones and are not so happy about the Abilene horns. If the serial is above 200000 is there any way to tell the Fullerton made cornet from the Abilene one? Are they equally good? Thanks!
