Just searching for any possible information on my old trumpet. I have had it for nearly 30 years and have no clue as to how old it really is. There is a lot of stamping on the bell of the horn, all in French of course. It reads as follows F. Besson Brevete S.G.D.G 96 Rue D'angouleme Paris....etc. Under the 2nd valve there is what I assume is the serial number 102171. 265 Here is a photo of it if that helps any. What I find odd is that the 2nd valve slide is not slanted forward it comes straight out. Any feed back would be appreciated. I am not wanting to sell it, just looking for information on the old horn. I love it and just wish I had never stopped playing it after high school. It still sounds and plays as good as it ever has.
