This is a model '23' Boosey & Hawkes Imperial trumpet that was aimed at the intermediate/professional market back in the day.
For its age this horn cosmetically is in great shape and plays well. There are scratches and marks but that's only to be expected for a well-used horn. There is some plating wear but it is very minimal, most notable in these photos is the tarnish that can be wiped away prior to receiving the horn.
The instrument has been beautifully looked after and regularly maintained. The valves and slides operate well, showing good signs of compression and smoothness. The 3rd slide has a trigger allowing the player quick action.
