Charles Lavallee coronet

Hello folks,

My daughter and I stumbled across a silver plated Charles Lavallee coronet at a local Value Village.

We can't find much information on the manufacturer or the horn on the web.  One of the few mentions of Lavallee instruments is on this site.  Near as we can figure the coronet is about 100 years old and despite the age, it's in amazing condition.  I've gone over it with a fine tooth cone, but I can't find any serial numbers. The manufacturer was based in Montreal Canada and they supplied high end instruments to the Montreal symphony.

I'll try and put a link to the pictures of the instrument and case below:

If people can't get to the Google Drive directory, I'll try and post the pictures here.

Thanks in advance...

Mark

How rare are Lavallee Cornet horns by the way? I've not seen one yet besides in the pics.
