This cornet was found at Friendship Christian School Mt. Juliet, Tn. under and bunch of instrument cases and brought to me to get into playing condition - serial #558 - anybody have info on the bell engraving of the Egyptian with the bird helmet?

Wow, I have never seen anything like this before... This is an extremely early Bach Strad cornet, and would assume the engraving was done for a specific client who ordered the cornet.

I would strongly suggest you contact Conn Selmer customer service at 1000 Industrial Parkway, Elkhart, IN 46516-5526 (574) 295-0079 and politely ask them for a "shop card" on this cornet. They should have one, and scan /email it to you and should all of the details of the horn, perhaps also the name of the person it was sold to. Might have some additional information on the engraving.

Good luck! Please upload any additional images, and a copy of the shop card when you get it.
