The main body of the wood shows no cracks or damage, with only minor scuffs and scratches. However the bell has two repaired sealed cracks, and in addition, perhaps due to the repair work there are some marks to the top of the bell tenon, see photo 12. The Nickel Silver plate shows some wear, mostly to the rings and the throat A & G# keys The S/N is A4228 which dates to 1981. The instrument has just been fully overhauled by Mike Huntriss in tan leather pads. The key work, which is complex and regulation are all in excellent order.
