Picked this baby up for $25, was everyone else sleeping!?  Even though the rubber has browned somewhat,this instrument is solid, no glaring defects, and definitely not worn out, just needs cleaning and standard overhaul work.  It even came in a lot with a much later/ cheaper Bb, but still a French made stencil of some sort.  Anyway, here are some pics:

The barrel is really short, but I believe this is still a LP instrument.  I'll have to dig out all my Cs for comparison- I do have a definite HP Boehm C in that mix.

Well heck, $25 for a C of any pitch is a massive win!

I know, ridiculous!  This is a SOLID instrument with some cool features rarely seen on a C.  Plus the Bb that came with it doesn't seem terrible, it has a few money saving concessions (sheet metal thumbrest, no A/G# adjustment screw, though the space for it is there), but I can tell some reasonable care went into the construction.

Good Lord in Heaven!
I request the offer of first refusal, should you ever part ways with it.  That is a true gem.  I believe it to be a LP C, but my recent bell purchase has shaken my previously held belief that no HP Harry Pedlers exist.
