    Rounded bell crook, weird serial number, non-Bach lever water key adjustable 3rd slide, poor engraving and no Vincent Bach signature says otherwise. And they haven't done pinky hooks that look even remotely like that since the late 70's.

    Has a lyre holder soldered on the third slide, and the 3rd valve stop rod is facing the incorrect way, I believe for that era.

    I'd say it's a step up student horn - whatever they're called (TR600? Soloist? something like that).

    It clearly has "Stradivarius" engraved on the bell, and to my limited knowledge, Conn-Selmer has never applied the Stradivarius name to nothing less than a pro horn.

    TR200 and Solosit are both models of step up instrument, as well as the Omega, and possibly others.

    maybe he put a Strad bell on it ... and a Lyre holder, cause you never know when you are going to get the big money call to march in a parade ... and of course you wouldn't leave your Strad at home.

    Looks to me like the person selling this is the Lyre. I'm not convinced about this one. That is what I love about this forum. You guys are great in catching these potental shams!

    fair point, best way would be to check the number out with bach then you'll really find out what its like, it could very well be an intermediate with a strad bell, my Omega I had looked very very similar to a strad but with a different bell

    That can't be real strad. Its got the finger hook attachment from a student model. feel sorry for the poor person who buys it :/
