Here's a couple of pics of my Holton C-25 and documentation still in the case when I bought it. Note the date on the form.
Is this considered an extended cornet? It has a really bright and trumpety sound.182183184185186187

A trumpet has a cylindrical bore, while a cornet has a slightly conical bore. These instruments have quite different ancestors and are actually not related at all.
Try which mouthpiece that will fit; a trumpet- or a cornet mouthpiece? These have different outer dimensions around the outer of the stem (the cornet mouthpiece is shorter and have a smaller diameter around the stem, because of a conical tubing and the same length of the tubings as a trumpet).
