Selmer got everything right on the Selmer Mark VI Alto starting around 1365xx, and everything after that can be counted on to play well in tune and do most things very well for modern players. The market tends to value the 5-digit serial numbers more, so if you want the best deal for your money as a player, getting a slightly later VI alto makes a lot of sense. This horn is American-engraved and assembled, which is the more desirable version of the Selmer Mark VI.
This is a smart purchase for someone, because this horn is structurally very clean and has ‘good bones’ despite having some cosmetic wear in the lacquer just from climate/age and moderate use. The only past repair is a resoldered low C key guard. Those pop off all the time on vintage horns, and this is not at all serious. There is no other damage at all and there are no other past repairs at all. That means that this is a really nice, clean Selmer Mark VI that should be very dependable to play and own. It has the optional high F# key, which is a welcome bonus for most alto players.
This horn has older pads, and I am for now pricing it low, so that somebody can get a good deal on a really great alto to own and treasure for a lifetime.
