Hmmmmmm???

Anybody recognize this horn or is maybe missing one? Seems like a scam to me.

Hard to get scammed too bad on a local pickup only, unless it turns out it's stolen

I don't think it is a scam. There are musical instrument cases, drumsticks in the background and the username says "boomerauction". The location is listed as Fort Collins, CO. Looking up music stores in Ft. Collins, there is a music store called Boomer Music, and photos of an actual sign on a store (the sign has a tuba on it!) (970) 223-2424 is the phone number.

Website looks more than legit. Likely just getting into selling stuff on ebay. People forget that everybody starts at 0.

Just seemed a little strange that a 186 could be potentially let go for a really low cost.
