Purchase & shipping

This is a 1961 Olds  Recording that is in good original condition.  It has some wear and fading to the lacquer but has all original parts and has not had any repair work on it.  Recently acquired from the original owner, it was used for a few years and then generally stored for the next 50 years, but kept clean and lubricated.  While it has most of the original lacquer, it is developing some colorful patina.  

Like the Super Recording, this model has the offset middle valve and balanced forward valve design, but also introduces new features which made this horn one of the most unique and distinctive of all modern trumpets; the Rey-O-loy bell and leadpipe, more commonly known as "rose brass" for the higher copper content; the spring loaded third valve trigger; and the distinctive custom engraving. This was made fairly early in the Fullerton production at the hey day of the Olds line. .   

This trumpet clean inside and out.  All slides are smooth.  

Engraving is sharp and clear

Valves are in excellent condition

Comes with the original "basket weave" case in good condition.
