I went ahead and bought the Jean Barre, but the barrel is cracked in two places. Otherwise it is in restorable condition. I also bought the Jean Dumont and it appears identical to the Barre aside from the label. The barrel on that horn is in good shape but the lower joint is badly cracked. I talked to Jeremy, and I'm going to send the Barre in to get redone using the Dumont for salvage components. The cases appear to be Noblet's/Leblancs and the keywork appears to be Couesnon. There was an article I read that at the end, Thibouville and Noblet briefly worked together before getting their inventory sold off to Couesnon. So perhaps I have a Thibouville clarinet with a Leblanc case and Cousenon keywork? Hahaha clarinets live in a mixed-up world lol.
