I Have a Holton I can't identify. Looking for a little help.

Bell says

B101
Frank Holton & Co.
Elkhorn, Wis.
U.S.A.

Valve casing also says Frank Holton & Co.
Elkhorn, Wis.

Ser # 396xxx

It has a 1st valve trigger.

Anyone know what it is?

Most likely mfg. in 1965-1966. This I believe was the previous name of the Holton T101, which was a close copy of the Bach Stradivarius. (does it look similar in bracing, etc.?). Would guess this was a semi-professional level trumpet of it's time.

Yes the bracing does look very Strad like. So If it was manufactured in 65 or 66, does that make it a Leblanc? Even though it appears to be manufactured in Wisconsin?

I just got one of those horns. I love it! In fact, I think it's the very same horn!
