    A picture of the instrument might help.

    Your description sounds like the Conn 40a or b: [​IMG]


    or 48a or b: [​IMG]

    shown are the b models (trumpets) the cornets are similar.

    Check on the receiver for a number and letter.

    I just posted images of mine on the eye candy page. I'm willing to take offers.
    The one that sold for $220 was in really rough shape.

    That is a beaut. Sold for $1250. And it's a trumpet.
    Mine is just a little more used. And it's a cornet.

    My student just got her grandfather's old horn. It is reasonably close to the same condition as that one although I am not completely convinced that the eBAY one is original condition. Hers was laquered on top of the silver plate and the ad makes no mention of lacquer. Maybe the seller didn't know?

    I'm on the Conn 40A/B bandwagon too! Mine's lacquered brass.

    What has been missed thus far is the York Airflow long cornet that has the 'somewhat' same look as its trumpet brother, except that the bell flare reinforcement roll is to the inside of the bell. This makes it look like it is rimless, until a look is taken from the big end of the bore. The trumpet version has the reinforcement roll to the outside. For pictures, go to the York segment of Horn-U-Copia or google 'York Airflow cornet.
