NotesThis flute is in excellent original condition. Noé Freres is not a household name but is one of my favorite French makers of simple system flutes. I currently have 5 in my collection and they are all special instruments. This plays quite nicely down to low C. It is also missing the screw driver which was in the picture from the auction house. 

The makers mark is different from my other Noe Freres flutes. Perhaps this is from a son. It could be slightly later than my 6-key and is certainly later than my other Noe flutes
