Holton - Ideal horn

Hi everyone & thanks to the admins for accepting me! I'm not a horn player. I play guitar and bass but am always on the lookout for interesting instruments. Does anyone have any info on this horn? It's a Holton Ideal made in Elkhorn Wisconsin & I think it's a baritone. The seller told me it's 75 years old. It could be, it looks it. I'm having trouble uploading the pics though. I googled inserting FTP link...but it's above my head  Embarrassed Can someone help me with this? Thanks!

Looks to me to be a baritone, but it is sometimes hard to tell from pictures.  How tall is it and what is the diameter of the bell?

The bell is 11" in diameter

The height ranges from 10 1/2" at the bottom & 11 1/2"
at the top (bell side) not including the bell.

The lenght is 27 1/2"

I did a little more research & I'm thinking 1930's?
