I'm sticking my neck out...I don't like to make statements unless I ("I", that is...I know many others often don't) think that I'm correct, but...
...don't I see "Kraslice" (or at least PART of "Kraslice") on the bell? Doesn't that mean Czech?
I count 1,2,3,4 branch "loops" in this tuba, which to me indicates (with only three pistons) that it is a pea-shooter (by the comparison of the size of the hand to the size of the bell) BBb Czech tuba. (Most EEb and F tubas have only three "loops".)
NOW, when I am proven wrong (I want to add that I've never seen anything quite like it before.) you all may "ha-ha" me as much as you like.
