This is a New York Stradivarius from the when Vincent Bach was still very much involved in the day to day operations of his shop. This trumpet was made at the start of WWII a decade before the move from the Bronx to Mount Vernon. Bach was still experimenting with variations and materials; however this horn has a  7  mouthpipe, which was more common in that era, and  and a 37 bell, which was not yet as common.  It has  a medium large bore as noted on the shop card.  

Valve action and compression is very good. The lacquer shows a lot of wear.  The horn appears to be all original and there is no indication of any repair work, quite amazing for a horn that is more than 75 years old!.  It has had a recent ultrasonic cleaning.   Comes with the original case in  good condition.

Matching serial numbers on the valve spring barrels, valve stems, and valve top caps.  Suitable to play just as it is, or a candidate for restoration with new lacquer, but nothing else needed.
