Question
I have a Leblanc "paris" classic clarinet Serial# 23321.  How old is it and approximate value?  is it a quality "professional" clarinet?

Answer
Hello Wil,
The swerial numbers that Leblanc publishes does not specify the exact model [pro or intermediate]...I can tell you that  your clarinet was manufactured in 1966...If it is in overhauled [ excellent] condition,I could' guestimate' a value of $600-800. for your 47 year old clarinet.....Cheers    JACK
