    Greetings Jim! My Conn 5 valve double bell euphonium is from circa 1916. It is in perfect physical condition. No dents to speak of and the finish is nice. I haven't played for 50 years so I don't know about playability as I bought all my instruments for display only. I also have a Conn 4 valve double bell euphonium, also in very good physical condition. No dents. I believe it's 1920s. I also have a Buescher 4 valve double bell from circa 1925. It also has virtually no dents. Also I have a single bell Euphonium made in London in 1895 by the Salvation Army. A silver Conn trombonium that is in absolutely mint condition from 1970. A King trombonium in excellent condition. A Conn valve trombone from 1898. A trombone from early 1900s made in Cincinnati by Wirlitzer. Two mellophones in good condition. One has valves in the vertical position. The other has valves in an angled position. Several alto horns in fair to good condition from various 'oddball manufacturers'. A 'Dyer' made in Minnesota. One made in Rhode Island. One stamped U.S. Navy from approximately 1907. One is a Pan American. I have a JW Pepper coronet made in 1888. It is has no dents and the finish should shine right up. I have a trumpet made in Pennsylvania by Keefer that actually has a circular valve that you can swivel to change the key that you play in. I have an alto saxophone made by Jenkins of Kansas City in the 1920s. I liked to find instruments from rare and unusual manufacturers. Many of the instuments come with a case. Some cases are excellent. A few are just fair. Also included are about $1,500 worth of instument stands. My job shut down in mid March because of corona virus so I need to sell to try and keep my head above water. I have over $15,000 invested. Will sacrifice for $5.000. I can text photos, serial numbers and would be happy to discuss over the phone. It is just too much for me to pack and ship everything so it is local pickup. Thank you and stay safe!
