Conn 12A (New York) Wonder Parlor Model
Date: 1904, Owner unknown
Since this instrument is called the "New York" Wonder I suspect it was produced for, designed at or sold at the New York shop Conn had at the time. Later on it became simply the "New Wonder Parlor Model". The instrument pictured here went for $4125 on eBay in September 2004. Just before the end of production of the Parlor Model Conn gave its instruments model numbers. I have seen a Cornets and Trumpets catalog that has the Parlor Model as the 12A. This must have been around 1920 or so.
