Cabart  
I have an old Cabart A Paris Cor Anglais that I bought second hand. The serial number is 70K152. I wander now how old this instrument could be.  I asked it to Loree in France (owner now of the brand Cabart) but they bought the brandname, but not the datafiles, so they could not help me.
Can you guess what the age is of this instrument and his value ?

Thanks,
ps. great website !
