1969 171,xxx Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone with 90% original lacquer. This is a rare Mark VI with headless pivot screws. I have queried several repairmen who have seen thousands of Mark VI's over the years, and this is the first one they've seen like this. If you look closely, many posts look slightly different than the standard ones a Mark VI typically has. All in all, these differences shouldn't have a large impact on the sound or playability of this horn, but it is a unique feature that that will make this unlike any other Mark VI out there. 

I acquired this horn from the original owner who purchased it in Europe when he was stationed there as a Navy Bandsman. The horn is in great shape overall, but the bow has been relacquered to fix a dent that the horn sustained. The color of the bow is slightly different, but it's in great shape and I don't see any artifacts of the dent removal process. The neck is original to the horn and has never been bent down. The horn has a mix of newer and older pads and is playing very well on them. My repairman just serviced the sax, so it's playing very well. The sax comes in a vintage non-Selmer case.
