"Erased" Noblet name
« on: September 11, 2017, 12:00:27 AM »
So here it looks like the "Noblet" name was somehow erased (not obliterated like that Selmer...), in an attempt to make the logo say just LeBlanc and not Noblet.

That doesn't look intentional to me.  I think the gold leaf just gave up on that one section.  As the seller is an authorized dealer of woodwinds, however, it seems a bit disingenuous not to call it a LeBlanc Noblet in the ad listing, however.

Not uncommon with screen-printed logos. The fact that it isn't worn off on the lower joint where it's protected by keywork is an indication that it was just from natural wear.

Then I wonder why the rest of the LeBlanc stayed on just fine..
