hope this is in the right place...
I know its a stencil, but my curiosity lies in made by who, when, and of what quality?

I did a search but most if not all the image links I could find were broken so i couldn't really compare. :(

Sax is seemingly solid silver, as some of the surface pits are quite deep.
Stencil reads Selmer, Pennsylvania, London, Made in France.
Key inlay doesn't photograph well, seems to be a dark shell of some sort.
Serial number of 45xx
Conductor routinely comments on how bright sounding the horn is

Really just looking for some solid info on it as I really do enjoy it and want to know more about it and its history.

Sorry stenciling doesn't show better.

I could be wrong, but those bell key guards and RH side keys look Beaugnier to me.

Ah, thanks everyone. I found some other pictures of Beaugnier's and am very happy to finally know a little more about it. My thought of it being solid silver had more to do with the pits in the key mechanisms than the engraving. The mechanisims have some very deep pits in a couple places.

Thanks again for your help!
