In the 1980s. Unfortunately Yamaha does not publish a serial number listing, and one can only approximate the date based on experience.

Thanks very much for the promp answer AJ. This horn seems to be in good shape and I might just buy it. The seller wants about 650 €. Maybe I can haggle the price down to 500-550 €. Thanks again for your advise.

Oh one more question AJ. Can you tell by the SN if the horn was made in the USA or Asia??

It is definitely going to be an Asian made horn.

I wouldn't pay a penny over 500 Euros for a prime condition example either. Although a good horn for what it is, it's a student level horn in used condition.
