This instrument was captured during the First World War (1914-1918), and exhibits a dark-shellacked surface, which was a typical camouflage technique applied to glittering objects. It is a German style, oval-shaped euphonium made of brass. It has three rotary valves with clock-spring mechanism and mechanical linkages. The leadpipe is broken and the mouthpiece receiver still has a brass mouthpiece. Nominal pitch: B-flat.
