Montgomery Ward sold Sherwood instruments in their mail order catalog in the 1950s. I had a trumpet and loved the silver finish. The finish wasn't what is called satin, I don't know what it was called. It didn't rquire the labor my current instrument does to keep clean.

i also have a Sherwood trumpet matching the description you gave with a serial number 10562 from what i've found Sherwood trumpets were made by Conn and Reynolds if your trumpet is the same i would be all silver but not polished except for the brand name on the bell

Please note: My area is BRASS instruments, not other wind, string or percussion instruments. I will provide information on antique, obscure and out of production BRASS instruments. 1) Please don't ask for evaluations, I'll not provide them on this site. 2) I am often asked very similar questions, so I'd invite you to first check on Much of the information I have garnered about this topic, I have posted on this WEB site.


I perform in several historical bands, have informally researched the area, repair brass instruments, and operate a Forum dedicated to the topic at
