This 8D plays great - in part due to the rebuilt valves which give it a perfect compression reading of 0.1.
It's made of lacquered nickel, though most of the lacquer has worn off. The bell ring is a Paxman ring, and an Amado waterkey has been added to the leadpipe. Small dings here and there (to be expected). The bell is engraved Conn USA which typically means either Eastlake or Abilene BUT the serial number is a K series, so it is possible that this is a K series that had the bell replaced when it was cut. Either way, it plays great!
Paxman detachable bell case included.
