De Vries trumpet?

Hi everyone, I got this De Vries trumpet.
Bell says De Vries but valves makes me thinking at some point someone fitted cornet's valves on this instrument. Am I wrong? I could not find any pic of a De Vries trumpet with such valves....
Look at the lead pipe too. Looks to me like if belongs to a cornet.

The valve section is from a trumpet. It only has one brace between the leadpipe and the second valve casing. The lead pipe is clearly not original.

Thanks Bastrompet. Do you think that those valves might be from very early XX century?

If there are corks on the outside of the top valve caps then it is probably from atleast pré 1920
