GLASSA [Furth i B] on valve casing, looks like typical German pistons with top spring/washer and guide as part of piston sliding surface, with Getzen Deluxe braces, ferrules, slides [?!], American Diplomat "Challenger" bell likely lifted from one of the Graslitz makers?

...or did Glassa make it for the client that ordered American Diplomat?!

EDIT:  J. Glassa in Fuerth, Bavaria, who apparently made instruments for Huller in the 1930s...possibly into the 1950s
