The pic is not very good. The case appears to be a Haynes case from the logo. You need to look at the inscription on the tenon socket to be sure. However beware! the head does not appear to be original. It looks, as far as I can tell, like a nickel-plated head. You can see the difference in color from the rest of the flute, and the fact that the part of the head which fits into the tenon is a different color.

The head is a student level head from another flute. I can't tell if it is a Haynes body. To enlarge a photo, hold down the CTRL key and roll the mouse wheel. Even then it is too blurred.
