This is a King Super 20 Trumpet.
On the middle valve it is marked "S1" .
The serial number is 415576.
I went to this site for the serial number http://www.kingwinds.com/content/serialno.php
It dates the trumpet from 1960 - 1965.
The trumpet appears to be in very good overall condition, there are various small scratches here and there from normal use. There are no big or deep scratches anywhere. There are also a couple of spots where there is a little wear on the brass. I see this as just normal wear for an almost 50 year old instrument.
The valves opperate smoothly, and all the other spit valves open and close as they should
The peices that come apart are also straight and true and are able to be easily removed.
There are no dents or other issues that I can see.
The original case is included as well as a couple of mouthpieces.
One mouthpiece is marked VINCENT BACH CORP. 3C
The other mouthpiece is marked CONN 4
There is a piece to hold your music as well ( The little harp shaped deal ) I'm sure that some of you professional musicians know a lot more about this than I do.
I am not a musician or any type of expert on trumpets. I am trying to be as accurate as I know how.
The case appears to be the original hard case, and has a blue velvet type of lining.
I am not responsable for any damage that occurs when being shipped.
Insurance is highly recomended.
The price of insurance depends on final price of the trumpet.
