Cheers, John As far as I can work out the flutes were numbered when made...6520 is a D piccolo made 1 November 1920...6521...6526 & 6527 are Eb piccolos made ön 1st - 15 & 16th November1920 so I'd guess in the 1st week of November.I have no interest in boehm system flutes & note you wrote Ruddal Rose & Carte, so perhaps this info above is wrong in relation to your flute, as it is only Rudall Carte by this time & from where I have gathered the numbers.Many thanks for the investigative efforts you people have put in. Looks like late 1923 (1923 includes numbers 6388-6546).I see I was not entirely accurate in my description initially. You would expect modern pitch by then but best to compare lengths with the table "Cylindrical multi-key flutes " about 2/3rds down For Jem...Yes, we really do need the OP to come back in here. I just looked at the recent ebay sale link in Jem's preceding post and my flute and case look identical to that.
