eBay also charges a small percentage of the final sale price. (That is
how they make their money.  Thus, if you list an item for $1,000,000
and some kid with a hotmail account bids, then you end up paying over
$1000 in fees even though there really isn't a deal.  They have your
credit card number.

Subject: Antique Alto?

Ebay has an interesting alto listed - apparently from the 1880s - at  From the
pictures, it looks like it has keys for high E and F (but no front F), no
low Bb, no rollers between keys, and has two octave keys.
