Good Afternoon -

I am a new member of the forum so please excuse me if I sound a bit green. I was given a brass Holton trumpet over the weekend. While it is in rough shape it it still an impressive instrument. On the bell is simply the name Holton in block lettering. What seems strange to me is the 't' looks to be in lower case and the rest of the letters in uppercase. It has numbers in two areas; on the mouthpiece is 1602R and 033225 on the second valve. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to post pictures if desired.

Thank you in advance!

Melissa

My guess is that this is a Holton Collegiate model T602R. The serial number is 033225, but I think was mfg. for Holton by Yamaha. I'll do some more digging and get back to you once I go through some of my files...
