Henry Lehnert introduced the “Centennial” family of military band instruments in time for the celebration of the first 100 years of our Union. This rotary valve trombone was part of this family of brass instruments. Many Lehnert instruments from around 1875 have a circular logo with just “Lehnert Phila”. These are found on the Centennial models.
