There used to be loads of "Console's" knocking around in UK at one time. Stephen is right about 'Selmer, London'---as opposed to 'Selmer, Paris'
I suppose the "Super" model was ---well----a bit posher than the 'standard'! They were 'iffy' to say the least, people nowadays tend to think they must be ok because they're made of wood. Not so.

"my recollection of them is that they're not very nice instruments."
"They were 'iffy' to say the least, people nowadays tend to think they must be ok because they're made of wood. Not so. "

I've worked on quite a few, and totally agree.
