Saxophone/selmer mark vi alto & tenor


My husband died last year and I have his horns to sell.  The alto has a serial no. M556**. The tenors ser.# is M229***. Could you tell me what year each of them were made? They were both made in France.

Hi Joann,

Sorry to hear of your husband's passing.

The alto was made in 1954 and the tenor in 1974. Both are desirable horns, especially in original condition. Please let know if you need any other help.

Have a blessed day!
