|#23||CROSBY Bb Fife, long nickel ferrules somewhat pitted,, cracks repaired, plays very easily up to D4. Note: This is NOT a “Cloos-Crosby model” ; It’s an actual Walter Crosby. Crosby was Geo. Cloos’s master, when Cloos apprenticed under him. Cloos eventually formed his own company in 1862. Judging by the size and neatness of the letters, this is probably a later Crosby, the earlier ones being stamped “CROSBY” with the letters about twice the height, and in a straight line across.||$250|
