I have the same cornet: Besson 198 with extra decorative inscription above the floral design which says 37 VR 97 (serial 65.***, I only remember the first 2 numbers).

Can you please give me more information regarding this particular limited edition?

How many they were produced?

Did you know the history or where I can ask more information regarding this specific limited edition?

kind regards

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.
