This is a Conn 80A Bb cornet. This is one of the iconic cornets made during the heyday of Conn.  This is the model used by many jazz and dixieland greats and can still be found in use today by professional and armature players alike. 

"What Conn said in 1941:
The 80-A model has made the Victor name famous. It is the favorite of many of the greatest cornet soloists, and a host of the younger artists have found it to be the ideal cornet for them. Year after year, dozens of the finest school champions in America win on the Victor. This model has won its popularity on exceptional merit. It is built in large bore and consequently has a big, mellow, rich tone, but it is so scientifically designed that it reponds with great ease and can be played for long engagements without tiring the player. Its extremely accurate scale has stood the test of exacting critics for years, and its flexibility throughout the complete range has never been excelled by any other cornet. Has Clickless Crysteel valves, Victor tuning wheel. Built in Bb and A.

This particular 80A has been relacquered in the distant past.  There is some wear to the lacquer and a few small dents, but it has a good overall appearance. All slides are free and the valves are smooth.  The micro-tuner works well. Includes the original A/Bb stop rod.    The original case is included showing some wear but still functional..
