Flint CL: ol' Eb Conn Helicon

Conn Helicon... Would that make it a Heli-Conn?

Sorry...

Anyway, these don't seem to be so common, and my eyes hurt trying to trace the circuit... Am i right to think it goes leadpipe, 1st valve, mts, 3rd valve, 2nd valve, bugle?

Would the pictures here be worth putting in the Helicon Horn Porn thread as well?

Mouthpipe (it looks like) goes into 2:

I think the Greenleaf Collection hasn’t one of these, it’s one of the very early helicons Conn made - should be a very small bore.

Thanks for the picture!

From far away, it does look like that. The post has a close up of the joint, perhaps because it has gotten a new lead pipe, and though it close enough one isn't 100% sure it is the mouthpipe, it is going into the first valve, though at an abnormal angle from the second valve side of the first valve casing. In both the illustration and photo, it is pretty clear that the bugle comes out of the 2nd valve, and at least with only 3 valves, how often does a valve appear in another valve's circuit? Sorry, not only my eyes hurt, so does my brain trying to make sense of it all.

That's why i think it way cool.
