Please note!! All dates that are given to these instruments are "best guess" dates.   I have relied upon the word of the person sending me the pictures of the instruments in most cases.   However, I do make some judgements based upon what I do know about the Slingerland company and their instruments.  I would also like to publically thank everyone who has submitted pictures and given me permission to post them on this site. Thank you!
