    My guess is a Yamaha 631 (or a clone) even supported by the case.

    That must have been one hell of a buffing job!!

    PS On second look I don't think it's a Yamaha the second valve slide isn't right and the lead pipe doesn't look right either. It's similar to the Yamaha...hard to tell without the name (obviously) but think it's cheap clone.

    if I'm not mistaken...that at least looks like a Yamaha flugle "case" in the pic. That doesn't mean the horn is...just that the case looks like it.

    I don't think I've seen a bell taper like this one. Almost just a slow expansion. Weird looking to me...
