Do the type of trees present in the balance action engraving lake scene mean anything? Mine has palm trees but I've seen them with pines too. Were the Euro ones engraved with different trees than American horns or is it something else?

Regardless of species, those trees represent the unattainable dream of a peaceful, natural, inspirational setting -- as imagined by an impoverished sax player stuck in a squalid basement room.

I’ve never seen differentiation in value based on the engraving. My Alto is from 1937 and it has palm trees. My Radio Improved from 1936 has pine trees.
