Thank you all for the research you have put into my instrument! The LL you posted Dave is probably the closest I have seen to the same emblem on my own instrument. I'm totally okay with accepting that my instrument is the LL model considering I had no idea how old the instrument was to begin with.

With the assistance of this thread I have decided to keep the instrument and go ahead and have repairs on it to make sure it stays in good condition. Thank you all for the input!

From your pictures, you appear to have an LL from the very late 60's or early 70's.  The size of the LEBLANC on the logo would put it right about that era.

Those are excellent clarinets.

Krrbrr,
You might find this link, plucked from Woodwind.org, useful:

I'm pleased to hear that you've decided to keep it.  Newly regulated and conditioned, it will not only bring you more joy to play, but will only increase in value as the years wear on, and it will be a fantastic heirloom someday.

Steve Sklar at Clarinetperfection.com used to have a really great year-logo chart for several main brands.  Unfortunately, the site is currently down.

However, his email is stevesklar@gmail.com; you could contact him for more specifics
