I am connfused by the designation "Victor" on several Conn model horns. I have a few Conn horns marked with the "Victor" title,one is a 1921 Victor New Wonder,engraved in the bell. It is top sprung. I have seen several New Wonder cornets without the "Victor' on the horn,what would the difference be bewteen the ones with it and the ones without.
I also have a pair of Victors 6A and 6B they are 1956 models,they are marked on the mouthpiece reciever with Victor A or B. They are bottom sprung. And I have heard of even newer ones.
Is there something that all the models designated as a Victor have in common?
Then there is the 80A cornet often refered to as a Victor but I have yet to see one with the name Victor on it. What makes it a Victor.
