Interested in dating a FN Trombone with a S/N of 45,9XX. Based on this thread, I'm guessing 1930 - 35??? Can anybody get it closer than that? Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks!
Bob

Yes, I would say early 30's but certainly not as late as 1935.

Thank you in advance!

I have S/N 9217 and I found a note int he butt stock saying it was purchased Oct 15th, 1927 to give you some idea ~ hey we have the exact same digits! Just a different order and only 54 apart!

You 'da Trombone man Lawrence!

Reminds of some years back when the Hunt brothers tried to corner the silver market......

But seriously, that's part of a serious Trombone collection.

They are fairly common here and usually with a lower price than in the US. However they have for the most part being used so pristine examples are few and far between.

But as you say a nice part of a collection...

Which makes me ask....I'll bet it's tough to get the entire collection in one photo....

At any rate, I know of no one else that has that size of a Trombone collection.
