Vintage King Master Model #217 Trumpet 1918-1924 withOriginal Case & Accessories
217 with original wooden Case. This beautiful vintage trumpet is in great condition. This is the King Master Model No. 217 , the serial number is #29808 dating it between 1916 and 1924. The engraving on the bell says Made by the H. 1918 is when they added the Co. To the engraving so that is how we dated it between 1918 and 1924. We found the original catalog advertisement for this trumpet on the HN White website. See the ad at the bottom of this description. It stated that this has a triple plated silver satin finish with a gold lined bell.

It weighs approximately 37oz and the length is 19 inches. The ad states that it has a quick change to A and tuning slide. The bell has wonderful engraving and the inside of the bell has nice gold plating that has some of the plating worn off around the edges. It is a 4 1/2 one piece bell.

The bell has wonderful floral engraving on the bell along with the makers mark and model. The body does have some small denting, see pictures. Some of the silver has worn down to the brass on one of the bends but the trumpet has about 95% of it's satin silver finish in tact.

The keys have mother of pearl inlay on the top and press in smoothly. The keys and pistons have been removed, cleaned, oiled, inspected and tested. The trumpet has been carefully cleaned but no restoration has been done that we are aware of, it is just in great condition. This lot also includes the accessories, 2 silver mouthpieces, the music holder, song instruction book and it's original wooden coffin case.

There is a place in the case for one more accessory near the music holder but nothing is there, I believe it is the piston cleaner that is missing. The case is in good condition but does have some of it's black coating worn off and the leather handle also shows wear but still feels secure. It works great and still protects the trumpet well. The inside has black corduroy and red cloth, it has aged and faded but is not torn. The twisting corduroy part that holds in the mouthpieces does not hold them securely and could be easily replaced or repaired. We left it as is to keep it original. The mouthpieces included are the H.

White size 10 silver mouthpiece and a size 8 Vincent Bach Corp. Our son that plays trombone tried the trumpet and was able to make it sound great.
