View Full Version : Star on my lead pipe??

I have a star stamped on the mouthpiece receiver of my lead pipe. My horn is an early Elkhart model which I am getting ready to list on eBay. Does any one know what this means? I know a star on the bell designates it as a light weight bell but the lead pipe.....??


BTW, I am a come back player playing again after a 28 year layoff.

This was also selectively used to indicate a lightweight leadpipe. I'm not 100% sure what leadpipe number this would be though. This was not commonly used.
