Welcome To Trader-Bobs Ebay Auctions. Allow me to introduce myself. I am a professional ebay seller. I have been involved in retail sales for over 40 years, the largest portion, of these years, having been my own succesfull retail auto sales / parts / repair business, which I started from scratch. I take your satifaction, AS A BUYER, VERY SERIOUSLY! If there is any problem with this item you have purchased from me, I want to hear about it FIRST, before feedback is left! So that the problem can be resolved. thenextitemwehaveontheblockis!!!!!!!! Trader-BOB's MUSIC on F_CEBOOK, offers a JW York & Sons Eb tuba. With it's original M & W leather case. Somewhat confusing is the small stamping, see pix #7, stating "Exchanged for New Buescher, Elkhart Indiana, 6841" The serial number on this instrument is 19824, putting it 1908 or 1909 depending on where you look online. Horn-u-Copia has a York listing by year / serial number, puts this as 1908 manufacture. The Buescher number 6841 is 1907, depending on where you are looking. This horn is in great shape for it's age. very few dents, a few wrinkles in the bell. The the three valves are a little sticky, probably no ioil in 50 or 60 years. two of the four slides are free, two stuck, did not want to use any force. It still plays. The case is a "Bulls Head" registered tradermark of "Maulbetsch & Whittemore" in 1893. Has the "M & W" on either side of the bulls head insignia. The insignia / year is consistant with one found online for a 1907 Gibson Style "O" guitar case. The case is leather, very well made, and nicely detailed. The hinge for the lid has come unsewn, and one over the leather buckle straps has broken. Has a few issues, but in great shape considering it is over 100 years old. My preferred shipping method for this horn is via Greyhound. It will ride in the belly of the bus, with no mechanical handling devices. Will ship bus station to the bus station closest to you, email me for a quote. *************** THE SHIPPING CHARGES ARE CALCULATED BY EBAY, NOT ME **************** CHECK OUT THE SHIPPING OF THIS ITEM TO YOU, VIA EBAY'S SHIPPING CALCULATOR.
