This is a 1951 Olds  Recording that is in good original condition.  It is still has much of the original lacquer, but does have missing lacquer and scratches throughout the horn.  Bell engraving is in excellent condition.  

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. These early Los Angeles Recordings each have unique hand engraving which was standardized in later models.  These first year Recordings have a trombone water key on the third valve slide as well as serial numbers stamped on the spring barrels.

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

Engraving is sharp and clear
