Question
My son & I have purchased a C.G. Conn vintage trumpet with serial #359410. It's either silver plated or nickle plated can you tell us what year it was made and a little history on the horn?

Answer
That serial number implies a manufacturing date of 1951.  Multiple models were made, so nothing more could be said without knowing the model number, usually on the bottom of the receiver, or the model name.

However, there is an excellent resource available on the web, and you should be able to find most of what you need here:

I can answer your questions about Buescher trumpets and cornets. I have been playing Buescher for 35 years and collecting for 7.

Experience

I first started playing my grandfather's Buescher 400 trumpet in 1975. Since then I have done a lot of research, including original catalogs and advertisements that I own, correspondence with other Buescher owners, and obtaining my own Buescher collection, including six trumpets and three cornets.

Education/Credentials
I am a technical writer with 15 years experience. I have also been playing trumpet since 1975 and collecting Buescher for the past 7 years.
