I have a LeBlanc Noblet Standard that was purchased for me new between 1961-63 for school band.  It is serial #14128.  So you should be able to date yours to some extent by my serial #.  All the parts are marked "Made in France" but I suspect it was assembled in Wis.  The bell does NOT have "Vito" on it. Mine is in very good to excellent condition (except pads) with all its lacquer and the LeBlanc case has few marks as my mother made a protective cloth case which I always kept on it. CWD
