This is a 1942 Los Angeles Olds Super Bb trumpet in Silver plate.  A significant number of the Olds trumpets made just before and early in WWII were silver plated, so it is likely that this was originally silver plated, but the plating is in such good condition that it has most likely been replated.  The engraving is sharp and clear, so no excessive buffing has been done.  

The nickel plated valves have very good compression.  Post War Supers did not have the tuning slide brace, first slide saddle, or 3rd slide stop rod.  This trumpet has all of those pre-war features.    

These early  Supers are considered some of the best Supers ever made.  Compared to post-war horns, this is a lighter weight horn.  

This trumpet clean inside and out.  All slides are smooth. Engraving is sharp and clear. Matching serial numbers on the valve spring barrels.

Does not come with a case but we can provide a generic case if you need one.
