This Conn Victor trumpet is in good condition. It has around 60% of the original lacquer with uneven speckle wear across the horn and a few areas where it was spot re-lacquered. It has just come back from the shop where it was cleaned and a couple small dents were taken out of the bow. The inside of the bell also has a line of lacquer wear, please see photos for more details. The serial number on the horn is 679844 making it a vintage 1957-1958 horn. The engraving on the bell is still beautiful despite light lacquer wear and reads “Conn U.S.A.” surrounded by swirling stenciling with the three Conn marching music men above it. The horn comes in a replacement case which is in very good condition. No mouthpiece is included. This trumpet has a warm, dark sound with good intonation.
