Description: Eb Alto
Manufacturer: Buescher
Model: True Tone
Serial #: 193XXX
Finish: Satin silver plate with burnished silver key work
Source: Helen Kahlke

This horn has been in my friend's family since it was new (circa 1925). Her grandmother bought it new, and played it all her life. This poor thing is in desperate need of an overhaul/restoration. It is currently not really playable.

The horn is overall in decent shape, and shows not signs of abuse. The finish is worn in the usual places, but about 95%+ intact. The only sign of repair is the neck fastening screw, which has been replaced by a dime. The dime is bent, and is very hard to turn.

With a real restoration, this would be a lovely alto. I hope it gets repaired, and doesn't have to sit in a closet or storage locker for years to come. It deserves to be played. It is a lovely little horn.

**Note the original accessories that are still with the instrument.
