Ser # W 13247,estimate 1920's, wood, upper joint about 2" longer than my Selmer UJ [31-32 {33 equiv.} 1970's full Boehm, great] so the neck is shorter since the high register key-pad is located near the top of the UJ with the combined low reg. key-pad/"pinch" Bb vent about 3" lower. Has the 5th R LF key for the low Eb, no altissimo "hole" for L 1st finger. Has an "articulatABLE" C#/G#, but no actuating "finger" like the Sel ??? The actuating linkage for the lower reg. vent [via 3rd fing. RH] is very poor mechanically, marginly [sp?] playable! Its described on inst as The Pedler Co Elkhart, Ind [w: lyre above], and on the case as WOODWINDS, PEDLER, Elk Ind. I've just restored a 1950's Conn BC with very similar, but better Double Reg. Keying, no "frills" such as low Eb, but a fine-playing old horn!, so progress is evident. They both lack the L LF alt.Ab/Eb, but I cant reach mine on the Selmer anyway, need extension! This is all I can think of now, if more questions, Willie et al, just ask [I work cheap!] Don
