My 1959 Olds Opera Trumpet

My 1959 Olds Opera Trumpet (serial# 275,8xx).
The Opera is the large-bore, symphonic entry in the Olds trumpet lineup, having a bore of 0.468". Most of the horn is solid nickel-silver, with a few brass hilights. It has a dark, powerful yet warm sound. The Opera is one of the more scarce models of Olds trumpets.
