Old topic for sure. I happened by a Lafayette Bb myself and was wondering if thus was still a topic of interest. Mine is unseralized as well and was wondering if anyone was trading notes on other marking etc. If not I will just consider this a dead topic.
Only happy mistakes here.

If your instrument resembles the one from Silversorcerer, I would go for it.

Unfortunately, this website seems to have issues with lost images lately.

Picked this up a few days ago, have taken down keys and cleaned since then, oiled wood, there are a few cracks that need treating  nothing too bad.  The bore to me seems a little rough so i am not sure if this if because of the age or there is another issue with that.  The barrel I am going to assume is original as well as the mouth piece but neither contain any markings.  Both are wooden.  Seems to be in fair shape otherwise minus the split in the barrel. 
The underside of the keys have a rough machining to them so I am not sure if there are what looks like roman numerals or they are stray scratches.
There is what I am thinking is a 8z imprinted in the wood on one section and an 8 oh the other section.
I will try to upload pictures again as i am getting an error when i try to.

Sorry about the attachment errors. I'll try to see what I can do about that.
