    I think the title says it all to be honest, I had one borrowed for a few days but forgot to look :rolleyes:

    I didnt notice anything when I did have it! Where exactly is it? and is it easy to miss?

    It's usually on the ferrule where the bell section joins the 1st valve casing; normally on the left-hand side as you are holding it in playing position. I wouldn't say it was "easy to miss", however it's quite small, and might "fade" somewhat on an older instrument, particularly if there were plating wear due to skin contact at that point.
