Guys, I recently bought a vintage conn from 1920's. Needed your comments and info on this model (1119954 A M143904 L). How is this model inferior or superior to Chu Berry or the later models ? What are the pro n cons of this model by itself.
I got it for around $450, though it needs some pads replaced, one Mouthpiece thumbscrew is missing, the other one feels loose. The thumbscrew that holds the mouthpiece to the body is missing. A small dent on the bottom seam. and 2 other tiny dents.
I've posted some pics here
Was it a worthy buy ? Have not taken it to the repair man yet. What could be repairing cost for the obvious repairs I got to bear ? Please comments. Your comments and info on the model will be much appreciated.
