    Thanks for sharing the info on your horn.

    This horn was shipped from Selmer Paris in January 1930 and was sold to Selmer USA.
    It shipped as an unlacquered, unengraved horn.
    Based on the Serial Number I would assume this to be a Large-Bore Alto.
    Selmer shipped roughly 400 Altos to the US in 1930.

    Douglas, I don't know when my horn was lacquered.
    Do you know if these horns for the U.S. market were finished in France or the USA?

    The US Market horns would have American pads, engraving, plating (or lacquering as the case may be) and set up.

    It appears that Selmer Paris did not start lacquering horns until 1932 ... but I do not know when Selmer USA started using lacquer.

    Thanks lePhilippe
    The description says that the bell has "some small dents and a small crack"
    That seems to be a little bit understated.

    Hi SaxBerg,

    No, this instrument is not a Modèle 26 .. nor is is a Cigar Cutter as the seller claims.
    Although the serial number is not clearly readable, this sax appears to be a 13k Large-Bore Alto.
    Based on the photos, it is clearly later than a Modèle 26 and also clearly earlier than the Cigar Cutter.

    Yes, I have been following this instrument for about 3 years.
    Thanks for pointing it out.
