Leap Day Clarinet Anniversary

This Leblanc clarinet came into my life 48 years ago on Leap Day, 1968. The salesman actually showed up at our house--at the end of a deadend street in a small Wisconsin town, surrounded by woods. The number 400 sticks in my mind for the price, a lot of money at that time.
