This is the classic Elkhart 8D in way better exterior condition than you would find most 8Ds of this age. The horn has been completely buffed and relaquered with most dents removed and, to return it to its former glory, it needs a valve rebuild. However, when the horn was overhauled, the metal was buffed extremely thin and there is some damage to the bell. With the work necessary, this horn may return to hold it's ground as the classic American insrument.
This horn comes with a Conn Fixed Bell case.
