Am selling this but don't know much about it I'm afraid. The case looks quite old and is a bit rusty on the hinges (no key), the flute is in three parts with the two longer parts marked 'sterling' and 'distributed by Selmer'. To the back is a serial number 22 2177 and 'made in France'. All the pads look ok and all keys seem to work well but I am not a flute player and can't say what it sounds like so am selling as seen. There is also a cleaner (pushed into in the long section). I will try to answer any questions.Viewing welcome.
