 Re: Help IDing older oboe

That's a mixture of two oboes! It's a basic Bundy/Selmer 1292 top joint and a Selmer 101/Signet Soloist lower joint and bell.

Do the serial numbers on the joints match up? I'm guessing the F6990 serial number is only on the lower joint and bell and the top joint carries another number (if any).

If it's a Bundy/Selmer 1292, that would be a basic conservatoire system built to low B and has a keyless bell with a vent hole (unless it's a thumbplate system model made for the UK market which were built to low Bb).

If it's a Selmer 101/Signet Soloist, it would be a full Gillet conservatoire system to low Bb with everything except a 3rd 8ve key and low Bb bell vent.

At some point the top joints on two oboes have got mixed up - the top joint should have an extra C-D trill touchpiece for LH finger 2, an Ab-Bb trill mechanism (link from the G# key to the LH2 fingerplate) and an extra (upper) side key for the G#-A trill.
