This cornet is in good condition, no dents, end of bell slightly mis-shapen but this is hardly noticeable and could be pushed back very easily. If anyone is seriously interested, i can send you some pictures. It's about 6 old but not used for last 3 at least. Valves very good, all slides move, case in very good condition with straight and cup mutes and 2 mouthpieces. Beautiful instrument, and NOT one of the newer Chinese made ones!
