Starting in 1950 or before, there were many publicity photos taken of Rafael Mendez and his two sons holding Olds Super and Super Recording model trumpets.  The Mendez Trumpet was put into production in 1952 and he played multiple examples of that model for the rest of his life.  The over all length is 19 1/2" (18 3/4" from bell rim to edge of curve), the bell rim diameter is 4 3/4" and the bore measures .460". This horn is in very good shape for it's age and plays very well, the sound is lively and response is excellent!
