Klaus, most (though the word "most" is sort of an odd choice, as these are rare) of the old Conn BBb helicons that I've seen were basically 14K-sousaphone-like instruments with a bell coming straight out of the 1st branch (no elbows).
I don't think I've ever seen a "oversize bodied" (like 38K, 20K, 40K, etc.) Conn helicon.
