I’m looking at an Armstrong tenor sax for sale locally. The horn is marked Elkhardt, Indiana, and the serial number is 31-18578. Searches on this site re: serial numbers haven’t given me the solid dating I’d like. One interpretation of the numbering system suggests 1981: 31 + 50 = (19)81. The seller says it is “more than 20 years old”. Can any one help provide something more certain, please? It is a student/intermediate horn with good tone, as I understand. Many thanks.
