# 7843 Cornet listed on Ebay 2004

Compliments of Jon Patton.

I was looking through an old binder of brass instruments that I had printed out years ago before I started a digital collection and found this Missenharter cornet with the snake on the lead pipe. Sorry for the low quality but this is a scan of a print that I had copied off an ebay sale back in 2004. The serial number is either 7343 or 7843 and does not match ones on your website. It looks a bit banged up but I would have bought it if I could. It sold for $1,028 back in March 2004. The inscription on the bottom of the bell says Kohler & Chase who would have been the retailers in San Francisco back then.
