Here is a great musical piece for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself!
Great vintage cornet from Frank Holton of USA. The trumpet has a serial number of 314446 on it which makes from around 1958. The trumpet body and valves appears to be in good condition. The trumpet does come with a mouthpiece that is also a Holton Collegiate.
The bell looks pretty clean. A minor ding along one side The cornet has some finish loss and scratching, but still looks pretty good. No major dings. The slides do move freely. The bore size of each slide is .5".
The valves are all operating smoothly and I have oiled the valve assemblies and cylinders to keep them from getting any corrosion, and they are already quite clean. Certainly some finish loss to the gold colored lacquer, but no pitting or corrosion to the material the trumpet is made of. Nice emblazoning of the name and maker on the outside of the bell, although lightly impressed.
The cornet is 17.5" long (with mouthpiece in place, by 7" wide. The bell is 4.75" across and the bell opening is 1.75" across. Comes with a hard case. One of latches not working, there is no key to the case.
