Gotta hand it to the poster. "The valves move freely." Hard to imagine a freer valve section.

Interesting, at the very least, to me, as the ferrules are similar to some in a thread in a tubenet forum regarding a couple o' sousaphones. Will put the pictures there momentarily...

My minimal experience with the make leads me to believe it has some potential at least.
Thanks for playing!

Somehow, to my eye, the bell taper looks like a Buescher....

I was going to say the same thing. The bugles taper (top bow especially) looks ‘buescher’ to me.
Some old Yorks, Martins and maybe a rotary King...

New listing...

if anyone in the area wishes to track it down.

Or with similar ferrules (hence my interest) is this Century Eb listing on ebay:
