Thanks!

1940 or 1941 time era. Any unique names on bell or lead pipe?

Hi holtonloyalist,

We just registered and now our name is trumpethero2, we used to be pookie22202.

The bell says: COLLEGIATE made by HOLTON ELKHORN WIS. The mouth peice says: G.GEYER CHICAGO
There isn't any writing on the lead pipe. The serial number is on the 2nd valve pipe. And all the valve pipes are labled: 3 2 and 1.
It plays well.

Thanks for all your help.

Thanks, the Collegiate line was a student (high school) line of instruments by Holton through the years.
