    Re: silvertone trumpets...

    Are you talking about HN White SilverTone trumpets with solid Sterling Silver bells or the Silvertone trumpets sold by Sears?

    I think he is asking about the ones made for Sears. I don't think Blessing made HN White horns, but I could be wrong.

    Blessing did make horns for sears under the silvertone name but they were not the only manufacturer that made them.

    Sorry I didn't catch the Blessing reference, my appologies.

    I believe they made both .454 and .458 bore Silvertones, neither of which is technically a large bore.

    There was a Sears Silvertone stencil of the Blessing Super Artist. .468 bore I believe it was called a model 200. Though there are even several variations of that. I owned one for a while, and it was a good horn.
