I recently bought this clarinet and need help to identify it further. From the research I've done it was made around '54 or '55. It has 176 marked on top of it. I couldn't find any other information on this clarinet

GBK nailed it! It's a very decent horn. Surely worth trying to get it playing again. I could be wrong, but I think it's a straight bore, meaning it doesn't get smaller at the end of the upper joint. I've repaired a few and like the sound very much.

Is this considered a professional or intermediate Horn?

Clarinet bores don't get narrower at the top end of the top joint - the top joint bore usually widens from above the throat A tonehole upwards and the reverse taper continues into the barrel.

The narrowest point of the bore is the longest length of parallel section in both upper and lower joints and the bore measurement is usually taken from the middle tenon as that's easy to measure.
