Dear Frankie,

I know this is an old tread but maybe you can help.

My Zenith has the serial number 18842 on the valve. Would you have any idea as to how what year this might be? Would it possibly be 1870's?

Many thanks,

Almost anything to do with trumpets.


I have been playing trumpet for over 50 years and teaching for the last 20. I own a Bach Mercedes and a Jupiter pocket trumpet. I also have very good connections in the retail industry, particularly with Largo trumpets. I also play trombone, keyboards, alto and tenor sax.
