Notes:







The years 1967 to March 1974 (when Conn moved their brass manufacturing to Abilene, Texas), is a period where at least some of the instruments were inferior in quality

In March of 1974 an alpha-numeric system was established: The first character of the serial number indicated the decade;

The second character indicated the month of the year;

The third character indicated the year within the decade (defined by the first letter).

The fourth character indicated the instrument:

The remaining numbers indicated the production number within the month.

From 1987 on, the two-digit prefix number plus 50 will give you the year of manufacture.
