Notes: This is a mid-century Godfroy flute which is interesting to compare to my earlier examples. Note the much thiner keywork, slightly larger embouchure. This flute is also slightly shorter than the A=435 models. It is missing the touch of the long F lever. Repaired crack in head. The stamps on the head is worn and barely visible. This flute plays quite well with a big sound.
