Wow, is that an example of wide angle perspective distortion! That little collar looks like it would fit inside the huge bell tenon, rather than vice versa. But "objects in photo may be closer than they appear", because the wider than normal angle of view. Common problem, but not often so obvious.

$500 for a 14K seems like a steal.
Even if it’s beat.

"It appears to be a Conn Eb"

Too much tubing to be in E flat.

Yeah, I didn’t think Conn made a full circle Eb.
I’m sticking with my first analysis.

It has the double loop on the third valve tubing "above" the valve, i.e., away from the third valve tuning slide. So it is almost certainly in BBb.

The seller wasn't a musician. He took it to a music store where they emphatically declared it an Eb.
