£449.00 on eBay


For sale is a wonderful Henry Distin cornet from 1901-02 in Silver with gold accents and heavily embellished with engravings. Sn 16965 on the bell and 19221 on the valve casing (This was very common for there to be two different serial numbers on the same horn). Beautiful engraving on the entire bell and also on the outer slide tubes and leadpipe. Gold accents are all over the horn and the inside of the bell is gold as well (but more faded than other gold trim). This horn was built in Williamspo
