French Horn/Conn 6D serial number

Question
Where is the serial number on my Conn 6D?  I cant find it, as it is not where the number is on an 8D (on the metal piece holding the levers).  Bell says Conn, LTD, USA.  Was an old school horn before.  Thanks

Answer
Hi, other places to look are on the valve casings (probably the 2nd valve), on the leadpipe, on the bell either as part of the engraving or on the bell stay, or apparently even under the valve caps. If not any of those, look again at all sides of the valve lever bridge;-)  It's a post 1970 horn from the bell stamp, I had a 70s 28D and the number was definitely on the bridge somewhere, but not easily read. You're probably looking for something like "GA940021"

Hope this helps
