When I bought my VI, the only way to get the F# was to order a package (this was in France). This horn has that same setup, high F#, rear Eb, G# trill (works the opposite of US hirns) and the RH lever to open high Eb resulting in a C# trill. I think the one in the auction is legit.

well, he got this horn from...ME:)

I picked it up out of Europe a while back. And, the keywork -is- all original. Not commonly known that Selmer would do this kind of keywork on special request. Was a competetive thing, as the old 1920's Conn horns often had this keywork(altho not the F#; that was a later thing).

Decent horn, nice price for an SBA tenor with a new padjob.

I sold this as I've been disposing of all of my SBA altos & tenors I've owned over the years...(nope, no more for sale, so don't ask).

Btw, my dealings with the Eskimo have -all- been very legit and timely. Good guy to deal with.
