Issued for the trumpet fanfare at the 1984 LA opening ceremonies, which introduced John Williams's 'Olympic Fanfare and Theme'

Desirable Blessing Model B-175 herald trumpet issued for the Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics in a limited edition of 126, to be used in the fanfare at the opening ceremonies in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on July 28, 1984. The trumpet, serial no. 340540, is engraved on the bell with the Olympic rings and "1984," and includes the original folded banner with the logo of the Los Angeles Games, with two hooks for hanging it from the trumpet's bell. Also includes a Blessing 10 1/2 C mouthpiece and the original carrying case. In fine condition. Accompanied by a photocopy of a letter from Blessing certifying the serial numbers of the 126 Blessing trumpets sent to Los Angeles for the opening ceremonies, with serial no. 340540 highlighted. In a memorable sequence from the 1984 opening ceremonies in LA, dozens of trumpeters performed the new 'Olympic Fanfare and Theme,' conducted by the theme's renowned composer, John Williams. Today, this theme is one of the most recognizable and consistent elements of Olympic broadcasts in America.
