That's $2000 more than that stolen pawn shop Thein.

For that Thein, we (sort of) agreed on that there is insufficient evidence to suggest it was stolen. I'll give you that. For your interest, that horn sold for $7500 afterwards. The buyer/seller wasn't even a trombone player.

For this, who in the right mind would sell a post-corp 36 for 5000 Euros? That price is higher than your Edwards Alessi, no? It does have a lightweight nickel slide, but that doesn't explain the bad slide angle, nor should a nickel slide bump its price at least 2000 Euros higher than it should be.

Of course, the price is way too high. I think the seller is not a trombone player and just tries to sell it at the highest price.

I read this title as you stole a horn and you're not sure how much to ask for it.

Tell the police what you actually paid for it versus what you told your wife.
