Emerson flute with serial # D75270 - 6

Post by payamphysics » Sat Jan 05, 2019 9:34 am

Hi Everyone, I have recently got hold of an Emerson flute with serial number D75270 with a 6 under it. I haven't been able to find anything about the worth of this flute online. I was wondering if anyone can help me. BTW, the headjoint says "sterling" on it. Thank you!

You didn't mention if this is an open holed flute or closed hole. That makes a difference in the value.

The 6 and the sterling silver headjoint probably indicates that it is a Emerson EF6 flute which came with a sterling head.

Here's a one each open and closed holed EF6 that are for sale (New) at an online music store. A used flute typically sells for anywhere from 25-50% of new price assuming it is in very good to excellent condition.
