Another type of horn I don't recall seeing before this one. Were these Conn stencils? It looks like the Pan American 56j on horn-u-copia.

Is this a rebadged Conn 10j, or is this the one that is like a 5/4 size that LOOKS like a 10j but is bigger?

If the horn is similar to the one in this thread, it could be bigger than a 10J.

Edit: Looked up "Wurlitzer BBb", and came up with a pic on horn-u-copia that looks like the Blessing:

If the Blessing is about the same size (Bore: .734, Bell: 20in Height:37in ), could be a cool horn. (Yeah, I know it's already sold. Still cool though.)

That is the photo of my Wurlitzer Lyric in Hal's post, which I sent to Horm-u-copia just after Lee Stofer overhauled it. It is a stenciled Pan Am 56J with the 20' bell, .734 bore and is made of Conn's version of the York alloy. The 10J usually has an 18" bell and a .693/.695 fore. This horn has big, full sound and I use in all of ensembles.

It was converted to front-action by Lee two years ago when I thought my carpal tunnel was getting worse (it has since abated). It now looks like this:
