Still in search of a 15" soldered seam all brass horn. Can have oxidation, cracks, pitting, and dents, just not severely crushed.

Let me know what you might have!

Does the horn require a hanger for a small crane? Do you need a straight nipple, or a bent one? There are many variations to these horns.

Just curious Jake on what machine you would put this horn?

Will a 15 inch all brass horn travel on an early Home or Triumph carriage or what where they intended for? :monkey:

I am working on a "⅚ out of 10" Graphophone BS and it is a build up for someone, not a restoration, hence the horn can have issues. Due to the difficulty in finding the thicker brass or nickel plated coin op horns, and given the ok condition, we have settled for using at least a period-correct soldered seam horn. I'd rather get a crusty non hanging tab horn so I don't have to wreck a good hanging horn.

Still in search of a soldered seam horn, any condition will do so long as it's all there!
