From my email today

I recently traded for a New York Bach, serial # in the mid 12,xxx's. It is a medium bore, with a 43 bell. On the bell is stamped New York 67. Could you tell me what the numbers 67 represent? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best, JB

The number 67 is the old NY postal zone of the Bronx, and was used on Bach trumpets that period (mfg. at 621 East 216th Street, Bronx, NY).
