None are catalogued as such, but I'll take a look at the instruments to
make sure. In a broad perspective (that is, many types of instruments
from different periods) it is often very difficult to determine
nominal pitches given uncertainty about reference pitches (A=???),
missing or damaged parts of an instrument (most notoriously crooks,
mouthpieces and reeds), and inability to quantify the effects of aging
and deterioration.
