: Okay... I was at a local flea market the other day, when I saw a tin
: "Silvertone" clarinet. It was in relatively good condition, missing only the
: low Ab pad. At a price of $55.00, I thought that maybe it would be worthwhile
: as a collector's item. (And ONLY that, I already have a Buffet Bb)
: Any thoughts on this? Is it worth the money to purchase?
I bought a Silvertone from Sears-Roebuck in about 1953. I still have it
and the Sears musical instrument catalog. (But the catalog is from 1959). The
Catalog number of the clarinet is 57 ER 02522, price $69.95.
