Details:

I got a somewhat smashed Holton 345 a while back, but the brass was in good shape. Hearing about common assembly flaws with this model, I took it all apart and then put it back together with different valves, a different leadpipe and different bracing that make it look much more like the Chicago York CC copies.

Could you take a few more vanity shots of this horn? Sounds like a cool project and I can't see much from that first picture.
