The Selmer "Cigar Cutter" is the name used to describe certain saxophones
that were produced by the Selmer Company
between 1930 and 1932. A cigar cutter saxophone will have a serial number ranging from 11951 to 18700 stamped on the side of the bell. They were officially part of the Selmer Super Sax (SSS) line, but were named for a uniquely designed octave mechanism
that resembled a cigar cutter.
