Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself! Nice antique cornet from C G Conn of Elkhart, IN. This is the Wunder model.The serial number is 71248 which dates the piece to 1902. Has a patent date of June 15 1882 on the #2 valve body. There is also a C G Conn model #18 mouthpiece, and then a CG Conn baffle/mute the come with the cornet. Nice silver colored finish on the body of the cornet. The bell looks pretty clean.
Still has much of the gold finish on the inside of the bell. Nice emblazoning of the name and maker on the outside of the bell. The cornet shows a number of dings and dents. The most significant one is by the bracket by the # 1 valve where connected to the neck, see pics.
The #1 and #2 valves move freely, #3 is frozen. Some minor dings and a crease by the incising that was worked on at some point in the past.
All the slides are not moving freely, frozen, have not tried to loosen up. The bore size of the slides are. We have oiled the valve assemblies and cylinders to keep them from getting any corrosion, and they appear to be quite clean. The mouthpiece is a C G Conn Model #18. In good condition, no dents or marks at end that goes into instrument or where mouth makes contact with end.
The baffle/mute has some minor dings. Impressed with the C G Conn mark. Has one piece of cork in the 3 holes. Comes with an older hard case, probably the original. Has a purple C G Conn Silk banner in it.The latches are working, there is no key or handle to the case. Also has part of a Bowen Music Studios banner stamp on the case. The cornet is 15.25" long (with mouthpiece in place, 13-5/8" without), by 7 wide. The bell is 4.75 across. This musical instrument is not represented to be in playing condition.
