This is a fun big-bore (.840") 50 or 60 year-old Sander CC, great player, great intonation and scale. Likely made prior to WW-2, then exported post-war as was common with goods hidden from plunder by the Nazis, and later, the Russians (bell is marked "made in W Germany" but the Sanders factory was destroyed during the war.)
Very interesting history, unique look, main tuning slide on left hand. Great valves, slides, shows its age well, If you have any other questions or want some additional referral to the horn, please just E-mail and I'll be happy to reply!
