I think that lots of the European-assembled MkVIs did not have any serial numbers on the crook. I know that my tenor (1962) and alto (1957) don't.

There was also a thread about this on SOTW.

PS If there are serial numbers in both places it would be good if they match !

I would think that most MkV1 saxophones bought in the UK wont have a number on the crook. A friend of mine bought a MKV1 alto in the USA and that one has the number on the crook. They don't all have MKV1 stamped on them either. The serial number identifies MKV1 saxophones.
