    Did someone here buy it? If so, please let us know how the horn is once you get it. That is a great price if the horn plays well.

  14. Sticky: FS: 1974 Besson Sovereign 968 - Satin Silver

    This horn looks very good and comes with a case. It looks like a New Standard to me, but I know there was a lot of similarity between the two. I see a few small dents in the bottom bow and not a lot...
