 Re: F.Loree Oboe.Serial Number help please

That's the same specification oboe Leon Goossens played - thumbplate system with simple 8ve keys - plus LH F and C# keys for the LH little finger.

I'm wondering about the serial number - is it really DD or could it be D057 or O057 or D57 (with an overstamped D) as Leon Goossens' one was from 1907. Several keywork features on this aren't found on '70s Lorees (eg. the lack of the bell vent and the double adjusting screws on the Eb pad cup and the 8ve keys are a bit OTT), and the crown isn't like that of a '70s Loree which is pretty much as is seen on modern Lorees. I've worked on a few DQ-DZ Lorees (full Gillet conservatoire) and they're far more modern looking generally having more rationalised keywork on them (less key pieces and fewer solder joints).

Could you post close-up photos of the serial numbers?

Chris.
