Just picked up this gem at an antique store in Edmond, OK. Serial #17346. Only has one set of tuning slides, but has original mouthpiece and case. Leadpipe has been replaced (not done well) but the original (with standoff) was also in the case. Looking for some additional information, if anyone has anything.

Thanks

most likely mfg. in the 1912-1913 time frame. Would assume the bell engraving states Chicago, IL. The new proportion model was a semi-professional trumpet for that era.

Here's an advertisement from the same era for that model.
