I'm posting something lifted from the TH forum. You never know who will read what. The internet has helped us recover 'missing' instruments in the past, hopefully we'll have luck this time as well.

An alert for TH posters. Scodwell Bb #122 was stolen in Las Vegas two weeks ago and has not turned up in the usual places. If it shows up in your area, please notify me. Better yet, if offered for sale, buy it and I will make sure you get your dough back. Just make sure you get a name and address from the seller to help the law catch the thief. They have been selling used for $1800 or so, but normally thieves aren't smart enough to know these things so offer $300 to $500. They always want to turn an unknown brand quickly for drugs and this horn is raw brass and funky looking. Hope it turns up.
