This is a really cool find, a Conn 80A cornet from 1926! This cornet has a quick change to A setup with a mechanism that extends the first and third valve slides when the tuning slide is fully extended; it also has the opera glass fine-tuner, and all of the mechanical aspects of the horn are in smooth working order. The horn is in silver plate with only minor plating wear. There are a couple minor dings. The 80A is an awesome cornet, and is popular with trad jazz players. With the fully functional A mechanism, this horn is a great find!

No case or mouthpiece included. This is an excellent vintage cornet with COOL quick change key mechanism! Piece of history!
