That horn is a Grassi, 100%. It's their standard ol' model , a "jade without the jade" basically. I literally have one on my bench right now...
A good take, IMHO.
Gotcha, you literally meant "for Me", as opposed to the more generalized "not a recommended take at that price for anyone"@JayeNM - if it's a standard stencil it may be OK for the price but not a bargain buy for me. Remember, I only pay near the market price if I'm actually after a horn or it's on my "if one ever comes up at a good price" list.
It does have rarity value, but rare often means unpopular and hence a lower price attainable.
