-  Key Holes System: 10 keys, square flaps, including unusual alternate G# for RH 1st or 2nd finger, pin in block.
-  Physical Description: 4 sections.
-  Mark Maximum: No mark.
-  Condition: Socket end of head contains both inner and outer brass lining tubes which appear to have been added as a repair attempt; upper tenon of the upper joint has been shaved down precariously thin to fit between those metal tubes. Likewise, its lower tenon and adjacent middle joint socket have a similar arrangement of metal tubing additions, the originality of which is not clear, and the middle joint tenon and foot joint socket share a similar design. Cap and ferrules are likely not original anyway. This instrument probably had ivory or bone in those places, one of which still exists at lower end of foot joint.
-  Provenance: Sigmund Koch, Munich, 23 July 1929.
Ebony(?), wood cap and cork-setting mechanism, mother-of-pearl bushing at embouchure, end of cap, bushings for 6 principal fingerholes, and at silver ferrules. Silver keys, metal-lined head.; 66.15 cm.
