This originally silver plated saxophone with the
Paul Beuscher engravings was thought to be a Pierret stencil
instrument model VI. However Luthiers Vents provided

Maurice (Albert) Boiste, he worked with his brother RenĂ© Maurice 
who worked for Selmer before he started working for Boiste.

As opposed to the americain stencils, european stencils are
equal or better (in this case) than the factory engraved
instruments. This one has more deluxe keyguards.
