I see the lock on the bell. Does the valve section detach?

I believe I could build one of those, maybe, out of an old beat-up Conn baritone and a beat-up Blessing B-88. (I really wouldn't want to trash an 88H to build one.)

Pure formalism, but Conn used G to designate their valve trombones. This is the 90G:

I think these were originally intended for Ohio-State-type band market.

Anyway, thanks for the fine photos!

Sometime a decade ago I saw photos of a 90G, where the nickel plating over the nut joining the bell section and the body was so smooth that it looked like the joint was not intended to be taken apart.

For the rare trombone freak on TN here the other Conn cat page from around 1968:

At leat on my monitor not all of the scan is visible within the TN page. Right click and open in a separate window, then you can see it all.
