Holton tenor

I am from Denmark, so sorry if my language is a bit unclear :)
I have an old Holton tenor saxophone, it's made in Japan and similar in its structure much of a Vito and an early model of Yamaha. Is it a stencil produced by Yamaha for the American market? The saxophone is in very good condition, slightly tarnished, but has a big and beautiful sound. Is there anyone who can help me with the age and value of the saxophone ?

Yes, this looks exactly like a YTS-21 tenor, the key giveaway being the one-piece bell key guard covering low C, C#, B, and Bb bell keys. The wide football-shaped side F# key is also a good clue, and the low D key has a pad which barely covers the tone hole. This is a Yamaha YTS-21 stencil, early 1970's era.

Ah, well, the nature of the Holton sub-forum, I guess...
