# 5564 Cornet

5564 on ebay 5/19/12

"Antique cornet by Charles Missenharter, made in New York, sold by Kohler & Chase San Francisco. Model #5564, comes in a Benge case.

Missenharter first made horns in Germany and in 1869 came to New York to start his own factory.

Condition of the horn is as seen in the pictures. Some spots with plate wear. I don't play so can not say how it works, but the 3 keys and slides do move. Needs a good cleaning. See the picture with the extra pieces and 3 mouth pieces. "

note, mouthpieces are not original and only one shank is original.
