Old Conn Helicon - They don't make 'em like they used to...

Very recently my shop purchased a very old Conn Eb Helicon in silver plate. Above is a picture of the original bottom caps. They have a beautiful pearl inlay. This is a level of quality that is rarely seen in mass production musical instruments these days. To think that they put something so neat somewhere were few people will ever see it...I will post more pictures of this Helicon soon.
