My trumpet has a serial number 147528 am I right in saying it was made in 1978??? Any info would be appreciated

Most likely this is when it was mfg. This is the Elkhart period, and sometimes trumpets from this era (and others) had unknown quality levels. I have one from around this same time period and absolutely love it.

What is the bore marking (ML - I'm assuming on the 2nd valve). Also what model marking on the bell?
