In 2000, my father bought me a Selmer Omega flute for my 16th birthday. He bought it from a Yamaha store for somewhere around 2k at the time.
It was a B flute, with gold plating on the crown, embouchure plate, and all the keys and rods. In-line, open-holed, with an engraving on the embouchure plate.
Anyway, about 5 years ago my ex-husband pawned it. I have been trying, with NO LUCK, to find even *information* on this model. I have found slightly similar models that have the embouchure plate engraving but few, if any, of the other aspects. If anyone could help me track down some information on this I would really appreciate it! If I didn't have pictures, I'd be thinking I'd dreamed it existed, lol!
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am sorry that you lost your flute in that way. While I know it may have sentimental value to you, it really isn't worth a lot of money. The place that your father purchased it at over priced it in order to make a high commission. For $2000 you can get yourself a much better constructed (and not to mention better playability) flute. I do wish you the best in luck with finding it.
