Any way to tell what key this is in just by looking at it?

Almost certainly BBb. The tubing is too long for Eb, and I don't think that they made these in C.

Most likely a BBb tuba.

Looks like an Olds O-99/Reynolds TB-10 which Bach marketed as a Mercedes for a while. It's a nice tuba, though small. Definitely a BBb.

I have purchased several horns from this seller and can tell you that he doesn't deal in anything unusual - this horn is certainly a BBb.

I'll stand behind Harold on this one. The seller in question makes the school districts that are within 150-200 miles of Amarillo, TX. There is very little "unusual" stuff to be found here. As a matter of fact, the nearest "unusual" horn I've seen has been a recently manufactured "F" tuba in Odessa, TX.
