If I'm not mistaken, Thibouville is sort of a suburb of Paris where the
instrument making is really centered. So it is probably a Jerome Lamy made
near Paris. Sorry I can't help you any more.

The Series 9 is a full-fledged pro instrument, replaced by the Series 10.
Some say the 9 is better. I have a 10 myself and, if so, the 9 must be
pretty good.
