    It looks like you won the auction. If you have doubts, contact Ebay or go there (or have someone else do) and pick the horn up.
    Ebay is risky and if the seller cuts out the institutions designed to make the transactions safer, questions should come up!

    Does anyone know ebayer tutdave?

    I bought two mouthpieces from him two months ago. They were as excellent as he described them. Everything was fine.
