      Someone years ago sent me a little file of the one and only recording of the
      playing of the silver trumpet found with King Tut. I still have it. I can
      send to whomever... They fitted a mouthpiece, blew a fanfare for the
      recording machine, and that was that...they feared it would go to pieces if
      blown again.
