    So I found this on Ebay. Any Ideas? It could be a stencil but what I have heard leads me to believe it might be german, 1920-ish and alittle rare. I bet you havn't seen one slimmer! check it out: (NOTICE, UPDATE ON SITE URL! 4/30 2005). http://wastedblues2.topcities.com/

    What it is: Says Viking on bell, no finger hook also dates it too about the 20's, a slide stop to A, one spit valve, wire brushed then gold plated(known as satin gold I think), part numbers on valves, came with gold plated Buescher true=tone mouthpiece, gold plated lyre(!), original looking case.

    The case has something on it and I don't exactly know what it says so I think it says "and" diagonally then "S.C.O." with this bellow: "(something..symbol?)Krack" and what looks like an address numbers 266 so far then "chicago" and then "trademark." ALL of this in an oval on the side. This whole thing might be like a Wunderlich story...

    I plan on uploading more pics. Ohh and Hi everyone! :D

    Hi,

    According to Dr. Richard Dundas, in his fine book ""20th Century Brass Musical Instruments" . . .

    Musical instruments have been made in Kraclice (Czec Republic) since the 16th century.

    He writes that during the 20's and '30s that there were many well-known factories, and about 10,000 men employed in the city of Kraclice making instruments!!!

    After WWII the companies were all merged under governmental control as Amati Kraclice.

    Enjoy your 20's era peashooter! They just don't design them like that anymore . . . but during the '20s they were hot.

    That's what I LOVE about the vintage instruments . . . all the different looks and "wraps!" Today, just about every trumpet is a clone of the F. Besson and they look just about all the same!

    Sincerely,

    Tom Turner

    Well funny enough it's a Sony Digital Mavica, quick access FD drive 2X with 10X optical zoom. I think my mom got it for $400 US dollars and It's working better than I thought it has, which means it works with the right lighting.
