More info....

This is a stencil made by leblanc / beaugnier ? is there any history on this company.

This is a pretty exact match esp the left hand little finger plate which is patented to that company. (Which basically nails it down).

Any thoughts on insurance value? I am not going to sell it as it sounds lovely.

More information:

Still playing it ... attempting to progress beyond student. Am currently able to play C,D,E,F major and Aflat veeery slowly.

This sax works really well, despite it having had a series of really bad accidents over its life,

for a start the crook has been bent / repaired and re soldered. The bottom of the elbow was dented very badly and the posts down there have been resoldered.

The whole thing has also been relacquered.

All in all these repairs, at least today must surely cost as much as a new pro tenor?

Anyway I really love it.

Matthew
