I was wondering where I could find information on the price of my grandfather's SML saxaphone. I don't know what year it was manufactured, but I believe he used it in the 1940's. If you could give me any advice I would appreciate it.
Please e-mail me at
Thank you.

I am looking at an SML ser.#8XXX Tenor. It doesn't say anything about "gold medal" etc, but it does have rolled tone holes. Lacquer is thin and splotchy in spots. Horn has no dents whatsoever. What's it worth - and what should I look for on this horn? Thanks,

A previous post by Morgan said SML dropped Lemaire's name from their Saxes as between 8xxx and 11xxx. It can be further narrowed from another post by Eddy (Red) who quotes all 3 names on his S/N 9797 Tenor, and my S/N 10,985 Alto which leaves Lemaire out. Who can narrow it further ? Or perhaps there was a crossover where Tenor and Alto were not changed together ?
