I just picked up this horn and was going through it trying to learn a bit and had some questions regarding the serial number. There is a 6 digit number on the outside of the valve casing, but on the underneath of the top valve cap is the last four digits of the casing number. Were the first two (11 on this horn) a model identifier? As always any other info would be great.

I don't have much information on the various Holton bugle models. This is the best reference on the various Holton bugles I have found.

What's the serial number?, and does it resemble any of the examples on the link?

It is serial number 116407 and looks like the tenor bugle. Thanks for the reference!
