The serial/casings remind me of William Frank horns, though they used a few different valve blocks and serial sequences/stamp styles

That is it for sure!!...Thanks,so much!!...I did purchase it in Chicago,where Wm.Frank was located...I am also guessing the 1272 serial number on mine,would date it pre-1951?

Possibly - I'm not up to speed on Frank serials [I think they used a few sequences] and their stencils "in the wild" sometimes are hard to ID...sorry I can't help beyond that
