I don't know that I have seen a picture of it yet. Maybe I missed it, but I just saw this one on Facebook.

I am suspecting that one is NOT an Eastman.

The one on the left is the Eastman, the one on the right is a York, played by some guy named Gene Pokorny of Chicago in a local community orchestra. We can see that Eastman has done a pretty good job getting the shape of the horn right.

Another pic of the Eastman where you can see the engraving and also the bow-cap.
Looking closely I can spot it on the previous pic as well

yeah...I know...I've played it. I was just (per typical) trolling.

The one that has NOT been taken apart and put back together (three or four times...??) by who knows whom - and has NOT had the crap buffed out of it - sure looks better... :roll:
