Good answer, though I would leave out the word "total" and stick to the Torah's wording.

The Gra on the Seder Olam also didn't like it. His 2 problems are saying Avraham was there 2x (not a strong kasha, I can elaborate if you request) and saying that the parshios are not consecutive- which the Chizkuni makes good arguments to support.

True, it is a machlokes. (Although I have heard differing approaches to Rambam). You can catch it at tisha v'shishim!

Since the horns are cut, smoothed and polished before they hit the shelves, they may look similar to, say, cattle horns which come in all shapes and sizes. At least to a city boy.

You seem to be talking of someone who knows the halachos. The only thing I could think of that's not noticeable is to know what animal it came from. Good question. You never know what manufacturers might pass off.
