I have one 13,9XX. I guess this makes it a new lagebore, but it plays great. The intonation is quite good except below low D. Big sound, and I don't mind the keywork. I have a Conn transitional for the same year (1930), and the keywork on the Selmer is far superior.

People say the large chamber pieces work better. I usually use a Morgan 6c on my Super, but an RPC .115b, which has a baffle, works great on my Super. The intonation is fine, except that with the RPC it is harder to lip down the tuning on the low notes.

Any chance your horn is silver plated, No. 13936 ? If I remember correctly(been a long time), that would be a horn I used to own. Traded it in to the WW&BW back around 1980 for a new Series I horn. Wish I'da kept it, but that's the way it goes sometimes...
Not the same horn, but close in serial number! I think I was wrong about the date of my Conn Transitional. It is from 1933 or 1934 I believe. Even though it is a few years older the Selmer has much better keywork.
