These compare very favorably to the famed Selmer Mark VI, usually ranked #2.  Known for its rich tone and smooth action it is a well designed heavy horn, it keeps its adjustment well and is very reliable.  The serial number is 8,0xx, which means it was made in 1961.   Original Lacquer is about 50% although there are some scratches (see pics) it will be a great value for the money, the G# "pearl" is missing and a few of the bell guard pearls too, we'll see if we can make these blemishes better with some other inserts.  The early serial #s are darker in tone and the same holds true for the early Selmers (adding their big $ boost).  Included is an original Buffet tan hard case in good solid shape. It will get a "French Standard" rebuild, and leave in the original screw-in, large, flat, metal resos.
