Rare to see any instruments with this date.  After leaving Selmer in 1933-34 Mario was busy playing in the nightclubs of Paris as the “Unknown Guitarist” after his hand injury in 1933.  His first reed business M.A.S.I.M.  was founded in Paris in 1935.  

We hope to learn more about this instrument and it’s history.
