I have a cornet - long bell I assume as it is longer than cornets, but shorter than trumpets - that I am trying to identify. My dad gave it to me 35 years ago and I played it thru high school, but it has been in my closet since. My dad died the year he gave it to me so I never wanted to part with it; but my kids didn't play in the band and I am considering donating it now.
It is in a Blessing case, but has Vedette stamped on the bell. The serial number is 158301.
If anyone can help track down the history or any informaiton, I'd appreciate it.
