"Second set of Loree serial numbers ("double letter"):
AA1-AA99, then onto BB1-BB99 and so on to ZZ99
1910-1929"

It's got to be of this vintage going by appearance (possibly built just after WW1) - definitely not from the early '70s.

Any fingering chart for thumbplate system oboes will apply, although this one does have the added luxury of the LH F and long C# plus the Ab/Bb trill on the top joint (the upper side key).

If you get a copy of Leon Goossens' book 'The Oboe', there are several photos of this exact type of oboe in there http://www.amazon.co.uk/Oboe-Yehudi-Menuhin-Music-Guides/dp/1871082439/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1280873985&sr=1-1 His Loree was from 1907 and he played it throughout his career.

Chris.
