This is a Conn 60B also known as the Super Connstellation. It was one of the last new models by Conn before the company was sold and moved away from Elkhart. It is a lightweight horn designed to compete with other "commercial horns" (such as Benge and Schilke) that were popular in this era. 

Here is what Conn said in a 1966 catalog: "The most versatile, the finest trumpet ever created by Conn. .. designed for the professional. Extremely light weight. Includes three sets of interchangeable finger tips. Completely new acoustical and mechanical design throughout. Ideal for studio, recording, solo or band work. Length 21 5/8". Bell 4 5/8".

This is an all brass horn with very good original lacquer.  Valves and slides are smooth.  Compression is very good.  The third slide stop rod is drooping a bit in the photos, but it has been adjusted after the photos.    

One of Conn's lesser known horns since it was only made for a few years, but a quality professional trumpet at a very affordable price.

Does not come with a case or mouthpiece.
