Online Auction Description
This is a nice Coste & Cie "Stoelzel" valve Cornopean outfit. Coste & Cie purchased the Halary factory, (in Paris, France), in 1875, and from what I can tell owned it until 1878. What is unique and rare about "Stoelzel" valves is that the airway passes through the bottom of each valve.
This Cornopean is in great condition and needs no restoration work done to it. The valves and slides all move freely. It is made of brass, pitched in "High Pitch", comes with both Bb and A "Pig-tail" tuning bits, a period mouthpiece, and a "Saddle-bag" leather case. Please ask questions if you have any.
