Or "auction-site deal." With the unspoken, "... which I didn't bid on," of course .
EDIT on 07/22/2012:
I just wanted to mention a couple things.
The main reason I started this thread is to post nice horns that I found to be interesting, rare or just a really good buy -- hey, I trawl eBay and other websites almost weekly. That means I may come across something that you haven't.
I do want other folks to contribute, but please make sure what you're posting is interesting, rare and/or a really good buy. Additionally, restrict yourself to professional model horns. Finally, please do not post your own auctions in this thread.
I really don't mind if you post your auction(s) in the "For Sale" area if you're a member here and you've fulfilled the qualifications for posting there. (Please post in one (1) thread if you've got lots of items, though.)
William S. Haynes silver flute. $226.
While I'm somewhat far from being a flute expert, with the exception being Claude Laurent, but I do know that Haynes flutes aren't cheap. Serial number (27400) = 1958 or 1959.
Edit on 6-22-12: Sold for $900. Someone got a very good deal.
