    RARE Getzen Eterna 900H Bobby Herriot TLT Bell Trumpet w Original Case MP Dizzy | eBay

    Okay, I pride myself on knowing all things Getzen. This "900H" is up for auction now at an insane price for a used "Getzen". I kept looking and looking and something just didn't look right for an Eterna 900H. The more I looked, the more I found that is not "Getzen Eterna 900H". How many can you Getzen aficionados find (there are many ;-))?

    Valve block (including evidence of old bracing and placement of serial number), receiver, saddle, pinky ring, fixed third valve ring, "stopper" on third valve, felts and finger buttons, water keys.....

    'Tisn't a Getzen.

    The leadpipe is from an Olds, I think, and it looks like the bell was modified as there is a the base of a brace remaining on the 2nd valve.

    I missed the cut off braces the first time I looked at it. I just looked at the main photo, not the rest.

    I think it probably is rare, though.
