Conn First Class

Conn First Class 1879

Date: approx. 1879. Owned by Eric Totman

Truth be told, I know next to nothing about this instrument. It was made under the partnership of Conn and Dupont, which was dissolved in 1879. The current version of the serial number list (August 2014) dates this instrument to 1880, but the serial number list becomes increasingly uncertain as the numbers go lower. So this cornet was probably made in 1879.
