Besson & Co Bb Cornet. Incl original case, mute, 2 x mouthpieces.
I've had this cornet for at least 45 years having once played in a brass band. It was pretty old when I acquired it. I believe the number is: 120509 (see photo). It is fully working and was re-lacquered about 25 years ago.
The valves were re-plated sometime before that. I do not know of its history prior to owning it.
It has been well looked after and always kept indoors in its case. However, a lthough in a very nice condition, the cornet is used and as such wont be 100% and may/will have signs of usage - it is nearly 100 years old! There are no dents that I can see.If there are scratches - they are very light and only what you would get from usage - please see photos. I no longer play, and haven't for many a year - hence its sale. New Gator case with shoulder straps.
2 x mouthpieces with protective pouches. These terms apply to all items unless overruled by the main description above. For security, all parts have been photographed including serial numbers.

It is the Buyers responsibility to ensure this. Specifications have in some cases come directly from the web, but I have tried to be as accurate as possible. I always try to be as careful as possible in listing the item details, however, in some cases the specifications are not clear and a best guess is given.
