Anyone know what's up with the spelling on the bell? I'm sure some history buffs out there have the answer. :) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mirafona-Mirafo ... 1438.l2649

He's got it upside-down.
It's actually "Anofarim"... :P

Now that is funny. Kranz says "Mirafone", bell says "Mirafona".

Its a mistake obviously. In the stamp or coin collecting world, this tuba would be word $XX,XXX. Just think of the inverted airplane stamp "Jenny" or the 1955 double strike penny.

A true collector's Mirafona!

Maybe imported to Italy for a special market? Certainly a strange engraving.
