This Selmer USA wood oboe is in very good condition and 95% or more of the original key plating remains. Three cracks have been repaired. One is in the bell from the top of the bell down to the side of the tone hole. Another is at the bottom of the body. The third is at the top of the body down into the first keys. The bottom tenon cork does have some light chips along the bottom edge. However, this does not affect the playability of the oboe as it still seals fully. This instrument plays well. Please see pictures for details. The serial number on the oboe is “F5873”. The engraving on the bell reads “Selmer USA”. This oboe has a split D key, a left-hand F key, the F resonance key, and the Bb bell key. Please see the photos for the exact key work. It also comes in a new ProTec replacement case. No accessories are included.
