So I have a dilemma.. My mom is on the other side of the country in St. Louis at an old thrift store.. she said that she found an old Pan-Am Tenor being sold for 150$.. she says it looks in good condition (just a little bit rusty). I had her check the pads and she said that they all look pretty nice.. but she wants to know if it would be worth anything.. and to that I said


Well anyway.. the two serial's she provided are




Please respond ASAP.. because she is only going to be in St. Louis for one more day after today O_O

Thanks in advanced,

also, if it WAS a C-Melody, I mean MY GOD, what a find! O_O
C melodys arent' that rare ;)
just think, $150 to buy it, an extra $300 to get it into playing condition and you are left with a horn worth $400 - $500 tops in mint condition.

Hopefully there will be no need for extensive work on it..
i woudln't count on it, the original kid leather white pads can stay looking good for ages but can swell up and leak real badly.
