seller note British Antique HAWKSLEY EAR TRUMPET / HORN Metal Telescopic Banjo Type ca1900. The Collar is a good tight fit when the Trumpet is fully ended, the two sections collapse into each other as designed. The Bakelite Ear -Tip is missing but I understand that a Tip from an old Stethoscope will normally fit.
