    Left hand neck screw, teeter-totter F sharp trill, and in your first post, looks like extruded tone holes--maybe Buescher (?) anybody else???

    Also for security reasons you may consider cutting the serial number

    I agree with you, and whatever it is, here's another one just like it (aside from the finish):

    Looking at the RH pinky keys, they don't seem like Buescher to me. Also, in the ebay pic, larger tone holes (at least) look to be soldered on--can't really tell though.

    I see this is an old thread and most links to info or picture are dead by now. I am about to buy a York horn of a slightly earlier generation as the one mentioned.

    I would be interested in seeing some pictures of York tenors
