 Age of an E 11

Greetings all,

I am trying to figure out the age of a Buffet E 11. The SN is 871xxx. I must not be looking in the right place on the "How old is my..." page.

That's quite recent, well beyond most charts. Extrapolating from 1997 where most charts stop, that puts yours around 2019. Do you have reason to believe it's a vintage instrument?

If you E-11 has stamped on it "made in west germany"
then it's a Shreiber made E-11 (nothing to do with Buffet serial number lists)
as Shreiber does not have public serial number lists.

Yours would probably have nickels keys instead of the later silver plated keys.
I had several and I can't recall but the 800xxx would be in the early 1990s I think.

@Stephen- it says "made in Germany" so your probably right. I've got my R 13 in the shop and playing on this E 11 I've been meaning to sell for a student. Guess I need to get on ebay and see what kind of price to ask. It plays okay, a little putchy in the throat register and surprisingly light
