    tl;dr: Probably don't exist.

    I've been working on my Yanagisawa testing page and I've gotten around to the 800, 880, 900, and 990 series horns. I looked and found an odd lack of SC-880s in my 880...

    A different take:

    The firm was taken over in 1918 by Lucien Albert and went bankrupt in 1950.

    My opinion is that the 1937 - 1939 dating is probably fairly accurate.
