The Al Hirt special, or model ST500 was an artist model by Holton. From the serial number it would have indicated a mfg. date of 1966-1967. These dates would have been in the heyday of this model, and Al Hirt's popularity.

You can find photos of this model, about half way down on this page


Also some reviews on this page from fellow trumpet players.
