If it really is a 197XXX that would make it around 1972. I guess what makes this ad kind of fishy is the guy lives in Oakland CA and doesn't know english very well. Also you would think a horn like this would have a reserve price. Maybe this person doesn't understand selling on e-bay.

His language is not that of someone whose English is poor, it is more likely the language of an auto-translator. That is even more suspicious to me. Also his feedback is all old and mostly from sellers of low dollar stuff. At the very least it is a proceed with caution situation.

Wish I'd seen this when it was still open. I could have contacted the seller and told him I'd come over and check the horn out! I bet suddenly the horn would have been located in Chicago or somewhere else.

Go to the Source

I went to the source on this one. I contacted the buyer via an eBay message. Hopefully he/she will reply and give us the poop on the mystery horn. I must say, the info just done jive... I got my mark VI new in 1972, and the blue paint on the octave key wasn't done then. So, there is no way in 1978 there was blue paint on the octave key. But, the horn still looks nice. I can't read the serial numbers on the one photo of the back of the horn. The mystery continues!!!
