Hi Everyone.I am restoring a goldplate alto. I would like to ask the learned a couple of questions.The body tube is matt gold and the rings on the bell by the neck and base are burnished gold so to is the emblem on the bell. All the keys and cups are lacquer is this correctfor the year.The lifter arm that opens the palm key when you play top F is missing completly just the posts on the tube.Seems strange that it is missing,I have all the original paper work, hand book and guarantee card.It says it is a 120 model with a J finish and serial number can someone help. racer.

For an online sale it would probably fetch $900-$1100 in 'mint' restored condition with all original accessories. From a retail store it could go for a couple hundred more. Value drops from that for each flaw.
