*SOLD* Silver Conn 2XJ Recording Bell w/case

Sold.
Silver Conn 2XJ "Naked Lady" Recording Bell (bell only) with case. $495 OBO plus shipping

Image

Image

This sale is for a bell only, no horn body is included.
The front is shiny silver and the back is more of a satin finish. The bell overall is 8/10 condition-wise. The front and back show moderate scratching and dings, with some moderate to heavy scrapes/scratches inside beyond the bell flare (not that visible unless you're very close). There is some evidence of past repairs.
The bell rim and flange/connector are straight, true and in-round. I only cleaned the bell up with glass cleaner, not silver polish, so you might pick up some more shininess if you polish it - I like the aged patina. And who doesn't like naked ladies?

All in all, for an older bell like this, the condition is good and it looks nice from audience or conductor perspective. I could not find a serial number on this bell, so we'll have to rely on the TNFJ for age guesstimates if needed. I acquired this bell from a fellow TubeNetter who bought it from Lee Stofer.

Includes non-original case in 8.5/10 condition. The only condition issue other than normal wear is a scrape on one of the edges - I'll tape that up before shipping.

This bell is located in Tucson, AZ 85745. $495 OBO plus $75 Greyhound shipping. More pictures at https://goo.gl/photos/DonMfZMrx61D3uZU6

In the multiverse there is a TubeNet where we talk about how we greased our cat with toothpaste and hot sauce so it would fly better in the rain. Even then someone would ask whether the cat was lacquered or silver plated.

, that's weird. I saw both the inline pics and the pics at the Google link at work today on my PC, and I'm seeing them now on my phone.
Can you check again Wade? Thanks

This is what you have in the IMG tags. I cannot get that address to load in any way, shape or form. (I had to put a space after "https:" in order to get it to display what you have posted. I would go to your album and copy the actual image address, which ends with the file name of the photo, so it should have .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .bmp, etc...)

That there is some prime gobbledygook. :shock:

Okay, I'll check it tomorrow when I'm behind a real keyboard again. Hopefully the Google album link works for now.
