Well, the cornet arrived, and plays GREAT, although I had to give it a thorough cleaning first! The bell is in deplorable condition...it was evidently dropped on the bell, and "someone" tried to take out/iron out the dent! Other than that...it's in very good condition! A Benge shepherd's crook, silver plated, original case plus two mouthpieces. One custom made, plus a Callichio.
Also included;
A mute with "TD" scratched on it.
A rubber plunger with same.
25 business cards.
A worn leather valve guard.
