Other Details: Elkhart Conn 8D serial # 901414.
Detachable flare, unknown mfg. ring set, Very large similar to the Paxman large ringset, but I don’t have one to check if compatible. It engulfs an Alex ring. because it sets lower on the bell tail the corpus will not fit in some detach cases, It does fit in an Paxman flat case, but not in a Yamaha flat case.
Valve compression, useable but the usual minor leakage encountered in older Conns.
Bell flare sports a copper Michigan Badge/ patch and the flare has two high temp silver slider pin hole patches, see pics. Nickle hand guard has a small dent. + ship. Additional pics available, ask.
Wire brushed satin finish…clean it with a green scrubbie… No lacquer with the exception of some inside the bell falre
Mechanical linkage on the thumb valve.
Horn will be shipped either with an adjustable pinky hook or a Conn “Flipper”, (your choice) in a fixed bell case.
A good horn for someone who needs a detach bell horn, and you get the Elkhart quality and NiSi sought by many.
Extras: either a Conn / selmer flipper or holton adjustable pinky hook, your choice.
