This is a 1969 Conn Connstellation 36B Bb trumpet.  The Connstellation was made famous by Maynard Ferguson and other players in the 1950's. The 36B is the lightweight and smaller bell version of this horn. 

Here is what Conn said in the 1963 and 1966 catalogs: 

1963 - A little easier to fill and lighter to hold than the 38B. Provides a little more to "blow against" in the upper register. Lower register, though big and full, is slightly less resonant than the 38B. Length 21¾", bell 4 5/8". Polished nickel plate with brass trim.

1966 - Complete with Connstellation case. For those who like the 38B features but prefer an instrument a little easier to fill in all registers and lighter to hold. Medium large bore feel. Length 21½". Bell 4 5/8".

Clear lacquer is placed over nickel plated horns and with very few exceptions, the lacquer does not hold up well over time.  Most Connstellations of this era have a rough appearance due to chipping and pealing of the lacquer.  This particular instrument still has most of the original lacquer.   

Appears to be all original with no past repairs.  All valves and slides are smooth and valve compression is very good.  

Comes with original Conn Connstellation case in good condition.
