Depends on model. The very early ones are not worth much even with beautiful engraving. I would say no pre Zephyr King tenor sax is worth more than $700 - please shoot me down, King experts, if i'm wrong ;). Zephyr/Super 20 in good condition is easily worth that money. I seem to remember there are also more recent saxes that trade on the King name - I doubt one of those is worth $700 either. You need more info on the model and a serial number. :)

probably a King Cleveland 613 or 615, they are not bad student's horns, in that case (and if they are really perfect....) the price is about right otherways not. A Zephyr in good condition is worth about 2 to 3 times that much in my book and a Super 20 from 5 to 8 times that much.....

If you are going to have a King, it might as well be a Super 20!
