 F Loree serial number digits only
Author: Saaz 
Date:   2019-03-11 11:06

Hello.
This is my first post here. I have a Loree oboe which looks very old. The outside diameter is much lower than modern oboes. I understand that Loree serial numbers have two letters followed by two numbers. My oboe’s serial number is just 90. I don’t see any letters before the number.

Did Loree ever have serial numbers that were only digits?

I also read here or elsewhere that the letters are engraved shallower compared to the number and can get worn out.

Also, the number is not in the usual place. It is under the key in the lower front part of the lower joint and also on the bell under the keyword.

Any clue? I have also read about fake loree but they also had two letter I believe.

Thanks!
