For your consideration is a vintage 1950’s Vincent Bach Mercedes model Mt. Vernon brass trumpet with a hard shell case included. According to information available on bachbrass. Com, this trumpet would land somewhere between 1955 to 1960 for production based on the serial number (14750). This also puts it in the correct era for production in Mt. Vernon, NY as they moved from NYC in 1953. This trumpet is in mostly good cosmetic condition with only a couple areas showing wear (see photos) and a possible re-lacquer occurring at some point in it’s past. Along with this, the valves are not properly leveled out and would need reset. A simple Selmer hard shell plastic trumpet case is included with this trumpet and is in functional shape but does have small cosmetic afflictions. For example, the inner felt and mouthpiece slot section are worn out. That being said, the trumpet, mouthpiece, and accessories are still secured when closed. Exterior plastic sections are good with no punctures or breaks, but are scuffed and metal sections are rusted slightly. Take advantage in owning a great vintage trumpet project at a lowered price!
