Silver about half gone, but bell looks quite good and never crushed. Left hand,2 whole step 5th. Body and inside of bell missing most of its silver. Bottom bow was crushed and cracked . Now straightened and patched. Valves working pretty good. Not silent, but would be acceptable to me,ymmv. Has the hand made sheet brass bell with “that sound “. Very resonant,beautiful sound. Valves factory vented. No case or bag. I was hoping this could be my quintet/teaching horn, but I’m just too accustomed to piston valves and top facing slides. Pics coming tomorrow.
