# 8280 Cornet

In personal collection 8/2017

I have #8280 made in NY. It is the most beautiful instrument I have ever seen. It plays like a dream with a big warm sound. Every square inch is engraved. There are diamonds in the serpent eyes The mouthpiece is engraved as are the water keys!! It MUST be some sort of presentation piece. I am retired as a cellist said her neighbor found it in their attic if you can imagine.
