Kilton Vinal Smith used an instrument similar to that one up until his retirement in the early 1960's. I don't know if its the same one or if that is Smith in the photo.
Gary Buttery at U. of RI (formerly in the Coast Guard Band) still uses a 7-valve F tuba. I sent him the link to the one on ebay (which is not the same as his) and he replied that it is "interesting."
