Thanks for the opinion. However, if I personally decided to buy the horn,
I would want to use it - and there is no significant value to it as an
antique (the design simply is not much different from the current R-13,
and it has the same number of rings and keys) - I would have done to it
whatever needed to be done to get it to play its very best!
