Here is an infographic for all you lovers of Selmer saxophones out there (Me included!). This timeline of the various Selmer saxophone models includes the date ranges of production for each model as well as the corresponding serial number ranges for each model.
Please consider this a work in progress! I referenced a few different sites for the dates etc. There are definitely some difference depending where you look so If you spot of any errors or omissions please let me know and I will happily do my best to correct them.
