You sold it and accepted payment. It belongs to the other guy now. It isn't your job to protect the rest of the world from him. Let those buyers beware. You are spinning your wheels here and what is the point? Some photos? Who cares? You have either just gotten married or soon will be, and the wedding is paid for. Focus on the GOOD stuff and let the rest go. IMO, not meaning to be unkind, but this is a complete waste of your energy and a diversion from what really is important.
Caveat Emptor! I don't have to worry about this as I've never owned a horn I would sell!
Knowledge is freedom, and ignorance is slavery - Miles Davis
The difference between a beginner and pro mouthpiece is practice - tobylou8
Nobody has learned how to play the trumpet. It's endless. - Maynard Ferguson
Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!
Unless the photos bear the imprint of the little circle with a c in it and such has been filed with the U.S. copyright office, there is liitle legal action that may be taken for usage by others without permission. When you post a photo or anything else on internet without such, it's a give away of your creative rights.

After they left -- the new/younger owners were not so keen on the upkeep of the property, and occasionally the OLD couple would drive by to reminisce, and to stop in and say hello to me --- they often commented on WHAT A TRAGEDY it was to see their old place go downhill, and look so unkept!!, it sickened their hearts to see that.
My advice to them was ---- REMEMBER the time you spent in the house, raised a family, and cared for the property ----- you sold it, and you should probably NOT drive by it ----- just remember the good old days!!!!!!!!!!

You could have a friend ask a couple of very pointed questions on eBay and see if he includes them in the description - thus exposing the "fraud". They would need to be carefully worded - but it's worth a try.
Blimey this guy does not know a lot... Replaced the 37 leadpipe with a 24? wrong both ways. A 37 leadpipe would say 37 on the receiver and a 24 would say 24 on the receiver. Only 25's are blank. Custom... Looks like a nice horn, but a shoddy seller, I doubt he has the chops to find out whether the horn has a monster high range. Anyway, that's my rant for today!
