Basset horns from 1900 and even earlier have the low C. There is
nothing special about it.

---It may be better if one simply gets the serial no. or even the
Brevette.
design that is used for an insignia... There are a good deal of
older
instruments....some are not the age that the seller advertises as
well.

As to instrument it looks pretty new to be of that age...maybe e
mail the
seller and ask specific questions...I notice it has a low C
mechanism...this
may not be normal for a F Basset of such early make. I now
wonder what this
really is...?
