Yes, it was your post in the link I was referring too (temporary loss of mental faculties). I'm not sure where I got the idea that there were "filed down" Buffets. I actually saw what I believe was a C clarinet on ebay recently (listed as a Bb but had "C LP" stamped on it) that had many of the characteristics from your posting as far keywork was concerned (hard to tell from a few pics). It looked like the trademarks had been filed/sanded off at some point in time. To what end, I do not know, as it didn't bring in a fortune or anything. As soon as I get my Carl Fischer reassembled, I will post some pictures. After cleaning, oiling, and polishing the keywork, the components are looking great-it won't even be recognizable as its old neglected self! Without having it in my hands, just about everything matches your description except that it has no recess for the register key, but it has even the initial inside a pad cup (yes, it has the doughnut key also). I can't find any evidence of a serial number existing whatsoever. It could be worn off- this thing was well played. It looks very much like pictures of other older Buffets I have seen on ebay and elsewhere on the net. I could be mistaken, as I am just starting to get into these old clarinets. Again, I have no clue why trademarks would be filed off (serial numbers would make sense in the case of theft), let alone selectively in this case. Perhaps it never had a Buffet logo, but was custom engraved/stamped for a specific owner, then later sold?
