This is a ONE-OWNER horn that I'm excited to see so loved. It arrived in Original white pads, no resos. (I should make a sound file of this vs another Chu for "Era Comparisons" and the importance of resonators) The Ser.# m211,xxx dates to 1928.  Excellent condition--98% Nickel-plating, "Chu" with nailfile G#, rolled tone holes, tuning neck, everything we love.  Original nickel plate in very nice overall condition.  2-3 areas of nickel flaking (neck, side Bb...), there were 4-6 dings on arrival that I helped with, burnished them back out(mostly). One small one still on the neck, and lower bow. original case in great shape.

COLLECTOR SET: Comes with Original Conn Eagle Mouthpiece, ligature and nickel cap!
