    Hi all, I recently acquired a Medium Bore Boosey and Hawks Sovereign. On the bell the engraving is the same as a "Round Stamp Version." The cornet came in the regular blue case so I am assuming it is a 923. It also had a regular trigger rather than a ring one. The only number I can find on it is 522496 which is located on the underside of the bell tubing half way down approx where the middle valve is. I believe it is a medium bore due to identification and how it plays using this site >

    I am interested in confirming my thoughts but most importantly I am wanting to know its age. I have looked through the above website plus read through the Guide to Dating a B&H instrument on with no luck.

    Any help that can be offered would be appreciated.

    Hi Phil,
    From the chart I have I would guess it is ~1980/81
