Missing pieces here and there, but one doesn't come across these very often, eh?

This factory was not far from Elkhart, Indiana.

The valve appearance in the picture (missing valve) strongly hints at being Conn-compatible...but who knows without trying?

Having owned a few and seen a few Cotourier instruments, the pistons are graduated in bore. The third SHOULD have slightly larger ports than the 2nd.

But I've been wrong before :tuba:
