The Olds Los Angeles Calif. I say museum since it very well could be the only one of its kind left. Serial number is 8530 which registers with 1934. Bell section very nice still with regards to dents and dings. Bell serial number is 8968.It also has a 1 7/8 LM before the serial number. Not sure what that means.
I believe the bell was the red brass tone. The most unusual part of this horn is the bear counterweight. Only produced a couple of years by my research.
This horn could very well be one of a kind. I believe the case is original. A little beat up but still functional. The leather handle is gone but the rings that held it are there.
The Two snap clasps are functional but not fully trustworthy. Mouthpiece is an Olds 3. Its an old style print but do not know if it is the original mouthpiece. This definitely for the collector out there but still sounds sweet. Please ask other specific questions.The item "Antique Museum Trombone F.
