Richet trumpet

I have another trumpet to the forum.

It is the trumpet of my father, who bought it in 1969 for the price of 5065 pesetas, about 30 . It is engraved as RICHET, tuned in C / Bb. It was originally silver plated, but with years it has been lost and is now in brass. It has some very nice engraved on the bell and something interesting is that the end of the bell is not rounded. The pipe is more thinner than a normal trumpet, smaller diameter, which makes it hard to play, but still works perfectly.
