Bell Engraving & Serial No. 24145
Description: Eb Alto
Manufacturer: Selmer
Model: Jimmy Dorsey
Submodel of: Selmer Super Series (SSS)
Serial #: 24145
Finish: (Likely) Factory Relacquer
Source: quinntheeskimo Vintage Horns on eBay.com

This is one of the rarest horns that Selmer has ever made, with likely around 200 only ever being produced. The Jimmy Dorsey model was made during the Balanced Action Run. This sax features: left-hand side bell keys; yet has serial # after BA production started (approx. 20900); and a G# key cluster like the earlier Cigar Cutter.

According to some sources, the body tube is that of a Balanced Action, while the bell is that of Super Sax.

Whatever the case, this is about the rarest Selmer you are likely to ever come across.
