Hi, Barb. I was researching the very same axe & found your post. I have an F-10 (S/N 72032123) that I purchased new in 1973 from Royal Music Company in Bowling Green, KY. Ater having traveled the world over by plane, train & automobile & performing in more bands than I can (or in some cases CARE) to remember, the F-10 STILL plays & sounds like an axe costing MUCH more than I paid for it. I'd like to find out more info, too. If you're successful in your search, please let me know. Just took a time-out from fret dressing, cleaning & restringing & thought I check the Web. The one thing I DO know, but that you've probably already figured-out, is that the first two numbers in the S/N are the year of manufacture. Again, good luck & let me know what you find out. John...

Have you contacted Selmer Industries in Elkhart, Indiana or WOODWIND & BRASSWIND in South Bend, Indiana for more information on your instrument? They are usually quite helpful. Also a Conn plant is still in North Carolina.

I got mine in 1974 (S/N 74022235) and as I recall it cost $100, which was a pretty good chunk of change for my parents. I was 7 years old. I've played it off and on ever since and still think it sounds wonderful. Maybe a little nostalgia....
