FE Olds Geyer wrap w/ Marsten valves.  Corpus mainly Brass with NiSi branch and bell tail.  A Web Quote: Reynolds… decided to use the Geyer wrap on this “high end” horn, although I am not sure. The man ( Marsten) who made the valves for Carl Geyer in Chicago was in LA and sold valves to the Olds company as well. He may have offered the valves to Olds and that may be how this Olds horn got the valves of a Geyer…

they really were from the same shop! I think that Mr. Reynolds was trying to build a better horn than Conn, and this geyer/knopf wrap allowed him to build a big horn with a freer blowing feel.

It is a fine horn made to compete with the big Nickel horns of the day, yet using the Geyer wrap.

The signature Marsten top bearing plate.
