Looks like 1977. Go to this site and see http://www.uark.edu/ua/nc/ClarinetCollections/BuffetClarinetsSerialNumber.htm --- Or get it direct from the source at: http://w…ww.buffet-crampon.com/en/instruments.php Brand : Buffet Crampon Instrument : R 13 Serial number : 179986 Year of manufacturing : 10/03/1977 NOTE: The Buffet on-line serial number database only contains serial numbers for French-made PROFESSIONAL clarinets. If your Buffet is marked "Made in Germany" this database will NOT work for you and any data it provides will NOT be about your clarinet!
Answer It is potentially a 1928 model. I found this page on the serial numbers related to the year of the clarinet. The link is located in the related links section bel…ow.
serial number does not exist -- according to Buffet site ---- Clearly, your serial number exists else you'd not have asked. However, Buffet's online serial number database on…ly contains numbers for Professional clarinets. You might want to contact Buffet directly with your question.
Early 1900's is the best I've found, it seems that record keeping wasn't so good back then. For your interest this man is actually playing one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s…G1ZUsnERV0
1935. The "E" indicates that it is an alto in Eb, and the "L" indicates that it is pitched at a1=440 hz. Source:http://www.woodwind.org…/clarinet/Equipment/HowOld/BBBC.html

How old is a leblanc clarinet 1669F ? Gary
The link below goes to a list of Leblanc clarinet serial numbers. If I understand this chart, it was probably made in 1998, but since they restarted the numbers in 1984-85, it… might have been made in 1983 during the earlier run of numbers. Since 1983 began with D25636 and ended with E13604, if the D-numbers ran all the way up to D35614 before they went to E-numbers, that would have been a run of 23,582 Vito instruments made that year. In 1982 they made 24,056 Vitos, so that's possible. What I don't know is when the V40 model came out. Somebody else?
The mouthpiece is a Goldentone. I don't know that much about them. It was my mothers. I'm estimating maybe 50-52yrs old still in good shape.
The Cavalier line of band instruments was established or launched in 1931 by the Conn Ltd subsidiary or division Pan American Band Instrument and Case Co. While dating by …serial number for Cavalier is yet to be established, the relatively low number would indicate a dating between 1931 and 1935. Currently a study is being conducted to try to establish dating for the Cavalier line similar to that which has become accepted for the Conn and Pan American brands.
