By the way, your last reply blew my mind!!  Thank you so much!!!  I really hope you get paid for your amazing talent in some way!  You have been blessed with a gift!!! Do you do much freelance writing or are you a journalist?

Did I get any of these details correct? lol

Key: Bb

Design: Boehm System
 
Type: Low Pitch

Boehm System 17 keys 6 rings Metal Armored Clarinet in Bb - Low Pitch

It's a standard pitch, a 440, with standard boehm key work.

Embossing:  MADE BY  C.G. CONN, LTD  ELKHART, IND  U.S.A.

Serial # 424N-B-214130-L

Mouthpiece:  ALONZO LEACH -  DE LUX - B6 - DES MOINES, IOWA -  STEEL EBONITE  - REG.US. PAT OFFICE

Ligature:  ELTON

Read Trimmer:  COUPE ANCHES "CORDIER" MADE IN FRANCE  BREVETE  S.G.D.G

Does that info seem correct?  Are there any other important details I need to add that your average buyer would be expecting?

Well... I am still working on my eBay listing. Ugg.  lol

This is such an interesting item and the more I dig into it....  Well, honestly I have fallen in love with this clarinet!!!

I can't even read music or play, but every time I look at this silver beauty.... my heart smiles :)

I'm becoming attached! lol

P.S.  Starting auction price?  Should I start low to gain more interest or average to cover my ass if it only receives one bid?  OR go high to show it's value?  WWDD?  What Would Dave Do? ;)

I really appreciate your time and advice, Dave!  Immensely!  I think I feel confident enough now to list it on eBay with your title and description input.  I will add the link here to the auction as soon as I get it posted.  I'd love for you to look it over and pick it apart for any edits you may have.  I really enjoy selling antiques and other items on eBay.  The research is usually my favorite part of the whole process... but, this clarinet has really left me wanting more info in the end.  It's been a tough one!!!  You have been a great help!!!  Thank you!!!!

DaveLeBlanc…. has anybody told you lately that you are AMAZING?  BECAUSE YOU ARE AMAZING!  THAT POST/REPLY IS AMAZING!  WOULD YOU LIKE A JOB POSTING/LISTING ITEMS FOR US ON EBAY? SERIOUSLY?  YOUR FLUFF IS THE GOOD STUFF! :)

I appreciate your offer.  That is a very reasonable price for an overhaul!  I'm not looking to invest any more money, I'm looking to sell it as is to some lucky buyer that can also make some money off of it if desired, or keep it and have a rare item for a great price.  I just don't know how to title it or describe it.  I'm not musically inclined and I don't know much about this beautiful instrument.

I have many questions:

Is it an "Almighty" C.G. Conn?

Is it a "Pro Model"?

I believe it's a JAZZ player's dream?

Is it "Armored"?

Basically all it's "basic" information would be greatly appreciated!

I'm going to post it on ebay... What would I call it? Title? Description?
