Hi,
I finished two saxophones from France. A Gaubert baritone, silverplated, and a Micollier sopran, nickelplated, both from the second half of the XIX century I think, maybe earlier. Playing nice in A 442.
Now the question: Both instruments has a metal ¿stamp? The same design, more less at the same place.
Anybody has any idea? Here are some photos.
Regards
Claus

Quote from the tiny stamps website:
  • the letters could also be read as "AF", as Jean Jacques Bona suggests, probably meaning "Auguste Feuillet", but he has no confirmation on this. Feuillet worked with Sax until 1867, in which year he started to work for himself.
That seems to be a reasonable explaination as the Adolphe Sax stamp looks like this:

Even though a Sax licensee would have been a rather interesting idea/guess otherwise.

BTW the tiny stamps site has a lot of very interesting information! Check it out!
