Am I wrong or are folks confusing Gregorys vs. McGregorys here? I thought the Master model was only made by the former, no?

I have 3 Masters made by Gregory - Hollywood:
5-18M tenor 4-digit serial # on top
5A-20M tenor (about 1/2" shorter) much earlier 4-digit serial # on top
5A-20 bari 4-digit serial # on top
all with gold band and slight protrusion of HR past band

Also 3 McGregorys referencing Rico/Los Angeles in a diamond icon:
5A-18 alto 5-digit serial number on top
5A-18 tenor much earlier 4-digit serial number on bottom
6A-20M tenor 5-digit serial number on top
no bands but 4 rings at the shank

Sorry, had 2 typos. To clarify:

my 5A-20M Hollywood Gregory bari did had an "M" in the chamber designation; and

my 6A-20 McGregory (or M.C.Gregory) tenor did NOT have an "M" in the chamber desgination.

Important distinction, I believe. Does anyone have an M.C. Gregory out there with an "M" indentifying the chamber?

Thanks, Hakukani; no worries. Very interesting about your MC Gregory. I never knew that the early ones wore the brass band as well. I've seen the bandless versions with either 3 or 4 (painted) rings. But, yes, very dark pieces.

$15?! U da man! I love it when lightning strikes like that. Few and far between. Great to hear those stories. Gives us all hope of hitting the next lotto, or at least the next dirty old link slant languishing in the corner of an old musty case at a garage sale.

That's it, I'm moving to Hawaii; as if I don't have enough reasons already....
I know you have a home shrine to those gods littered with old candles. But I'm wondering where you find the virgins to push into the volcanos. None to be found here in LA....
