If the spring is broken, it will depend on how much is protruding from the keypost. I it has just come unhooked you can gently retension it if it needs it and rehook it with a small crochet hook. Make sure that you go in the right direction so that the key is being assisted to open or being held shut (trill keys).

I have a solid silver selmer flute with gold lip plate, serial no. 3786. I cant find the date of manufacture. It is in pristine condition. Can you tell me the date?


Hi Erica.

Conn/Selmer has a web page with dating for a number of their affiliate instruments, though it doesn't look to be complete.
Serial Numbers If it was lumped in with the Conn 'Reed Mouthpiece' Instruments (as opposed to cup mouthpiece, which I'd think of as more 'brass', then it'd look to be 1899. The Artley Flute list starts with a serial # of 10000 in 1952. There appear to be other people out there having difficulty using their charts, and the Customer service page on the website is mum about contacting them directly, and suggests calling a nearby dealer. The dealer page is at
Dealer Locator Conn Selmer Inc

The description makes it sound like an Omega Model, see for instance

SELMER OMEGA STERLING SILVER OPEN HOLE FLUTE WITH CASE


Hoping that helps.., and Happy Holidays
