    Seems a little pricy to me, but it looks like a gem.

    I wonder which valves are in it.

    Spent a little time asking the seller a few questions.

    Replies to those questions:

    Made in 1983 HBS-378 Serial #083568
    Handmade by Peter Hirsbrunner

    The ebay seller is selling the horn for his father, who houses the horn.

    I asked for a photo of the pistons, which I have attached here:

    They look pretty good to me for the age.

    Thanks for the extra info and the valve photo. I agree they look good (I downloaded the photo and blew it up so my tired eyes could see more detail).

    I think the price range is fair, given the scarcity and high quality of these horns. But a price is not a price until it sells for $x amount.

    Looks like it comes with all 3 mouthpiece adapters and the case keys as well.

    For a little less money, I'd pull the trigger on this one - hirsbrunner has been on my list for a long while.
