OPEN TO OFFERS! I've had a lot of interest in this horn, but nobody has pulled the trigger yet! Open to realistic offers (not lowball or wholesale). Asking 1500.00 OBO for it.

Vintage 1955 Selmer Paris 24B trumpet. Interesting bit is that it appears to be a pre-K-Modified version (although those started the year before, both versions were apparently made). MP receiver fits like the old style, not stamped as K-Modified, etc. I've gotten a lot of great info from other collectors, and this appears to be the case.
Sounds amazing, really pops to the back wall when you need it to, definitely a "period correct" horn (as I like to say).
ONLY selling it because we're downsizing like crazy right now, but otherwise would never let this one go!

It has the original case and mouthpiece. I'm the second owner.

Valves feel nice, has typical finish wear for age, not a "minty" horn, but a really good player.
I posted tons of pictures so you can get a good idea (which include serial number, bell details, etc, if you want to do more research).

These horns are super popular for pro players and collectors, and this does seem to be a rare version during the transition to the K-mod versions that came later (plenty of debates on pros and cons of each!).

Asking 1500.00 or Best Offer! I'm in Longmont, but I can meet anywhere along the front range (Ft Collins to Co Springs) for a confirmed purchase (not just to "check it out").
Thanks!
