Sorry to spoil the good joke!
Nobody ever been close to a BBb 40K would ever fall into the trappings of this picture.
First suspicion comes up with the far too narrow bell throat and "back" branch.
Followed by the single top-knuckle 3rd valve tubing.
With the lack of an inner, narrower back branch and the main tubing bow behind the neck nailing down the fact, that this is an Eb sousa. Maybe a Conn 28K.
As for the instrument of the next guy, I wonder a bit about the discussions. My doubts are narrowed down to whether it is a Conn 24J or its 3 valve equivalent, that I do not know the model # of (23J?).
