    It does kind look like a D or Eb trumpet BUT the third slide is extended so maybe it's a C trumpet with a long tuning slide, since the first slide is too long for a D or Eb trumpet.

    The trumpet is a C trumpet no doubt. Long C tuning slide, the spare slides do appear to be for a D set...

    If the seller does not respond to questions, I certainly would not even place a bid.

    Those all make sense, with the optional tuning slides. Cool horn, I'd never seen one with the extra slides, so it had me a bit confused.

    TMers,

    Whenever you see a trumpet in two keys please remember that a horn can only be lengthened, not shortened. a C/D trumpet is thus a D trumpet with additional C slides. Ditto a D/Eb (Eb), F/G (G), etc.

    Best,
    EC
