Early Conn Sousa Bell

Hey all,

Up for sale I have a Conn sousaphone bell, believed to be from the 1920's, possibly belonging to a 38K. This particular bell measures 24'' across, with a tenon measuring 7 1/4''. The bell is in decent shape, containing no real dents. The finish however, is particularly dingy and worn. The bell contains an ornate engraving, including the words NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL. On the collar of the bell, the number 51 is stamped into the metal.

I am asking $250 for the bell, and this does not include shipping. (I have no idea how much shipping may cost)
Keep in mind, this is the bell only.

Here is a link to photos:

Yes... with a 7 1/4" tenon your bell is likely for a 38K. To broaden your buyer prospects... it would also fit a 20K.
