-  Key Holes System: Right tube: 0/5 holes plus 4 keys, square flaps, pin in block. Left tube: 0/7 holes, hole 1 plugged for half-hole vent, with 3 keys on pipe and a 4th key (high C) on fipple stock, plus 2 cut-off keys for LH thumb and 1st finger.
-  Mark Additional: Mark on fipple stock, right tube and body.
-  All left pipe keys appear to be original; of the right pipe keys, only the 1st finger key is possibly original although abused on the finger spatula when a spring and rivet were replaced. The F key is obviously from a transverse flute, complete with patent roller, which on this instrument is useless due to the shifted position of the next lowest fingerhole.
-  Condition: Original mouthpiece missing, 2 silver studs missing, and 3 keys missing as described above. See DCM 184, upper section of sponge chamber contains 6 angularly bored air conduits.
-  Provenance: Valentine O. Gorman, New York, 14 Feb. 1927.
Ebony, silver keys (marked with eagle or floral design), ivory ferrules, and little fingerhole bushings (one is missing). Bone mouthpiece.; 47.6 cm., 45.9 cm. without beak.
