11307 Euphonium McCellens Universal
In 1910, H. B. McClellan founded his music store at 615 Main Street, Buffalo, NY. His son, Donald, took over in 1930 and moved it down the road to 732 Main Street. In 1959 he moved again, to Franklin Street. McClellans did not make instruments but imported them under the trade name Universal (Paris?). The store went out of business in 2013.
11306 Cornet Bauer TARV Bb
11305 Cornet Pace c1887 Eb
Bell reads "Pace / Maker / 38 Division St / Sheffield" Poorly stamped so looks like "Race" and the street address is sloppy but Langwill lists George Henry Pace at 86 Division St in 1887-1888.
11304 Trumpet Lyon-Healy Inspiration 3142 c1920 Bb/A
Valves have 1-2-3 and no markings on the lead pipe inlet for country of origin so likely US made.

11298 Trumpet Ardin 55303 c1950 Bb
Looks like a German made copy of the Selmer patent valve block with a stencil name of Ardin. Marked "Germany" on lead pipe inlet but I could not read all of it so could be West Germany.

11278 French Horn Schadlich
A very early double horn, pre 1918 The horn seems to have many parts that were also used by Kruspe uses. Comes from the Vogtland which is where Markneukirchen is situated. Inscribed: Emil Schädlich / Hofinstrumentenmacher / Grünbach i/V. I assume V. is Vogtland, lower Saxony which includes Markneukirchen, which is of course 20 km across the border from Graslitz in Bohemia.
