Someone in my city is selling a 1919 Conn C Melody with original laquered brass finish, in pretty good shape. Seeing as that I already have 2 I am thinking about repadding it and moving it along... its only selling for 100 usd. Case and a couple original "yuck" mouthpieces included. I could get it and fix it up easily, but knowing me, I may be tempted to keep it once its done. I don't have one in a laquered brass yet , only silverplates. Anyways, just posting here my thoughts...
