Hello,

I purchased this clarinet off of ebay 3-4 years ago. I wanted to learn to play and wanted an instrument that would hold or increase in value over time, so I ended up with this one. I'm thinking of selling it now, but not sure what model and year it is. I purchased it thinking it was a 1960s Noblet 40 or 45. But looking at the serial number, it seems like it is a 1994 7166/7168. Serial number is 5426D. I'm including some pictures. Thank you for the help.

early Noblet 45 emblem when they have the oval emblem 40s. So an 50s Noblet 45 Laureate model (has the engraving).
D prefix is from that era too.
