    It's a beautiful horn. Perhaps too pretty to play...

    Looks a little like my 86I, except mine has an upright, non-detachable bell. Love that finish.

    That looks like an Oberloh restoration. Whoever paid more for that than they are asking.

  7. Hi,

    I have decided to hold on to this horn for now as I won’t be able to find another one in this condition and for the price I paid for it.

    Again, thank you David Shinn for posting this to the forum for me.

    Good for you! (I know more than a few people that were coveting it. )

    BTW, out of curiosity, what is your daily/primary horn (if you play regularly, that is)?
