I just picked up an older Linton Elkhart alto. I know Linton didn't make their own horns, and have seen pics of quite a few made by Malerne.
This one, however, doesn't have the usual Malerne traits, the bell brace is different, the right hand low C is not elongated etc.

I took some pics. The bell brace doesn't look familiar to me. The engraving seems more French than Italian. The serial # is vertical, I've seen this on French & Italian horns, in fact I just had a Malerne made tenor with a vertical serial #....

Any thoughts on this one? The keywork is nickel and the horn screams student grade but will probably be a decent player once I finish servicing it.

thanks for any thoughts on this!
