Hi, I've been awarded the task of identifying this old sax. It's hard to do a search when you don't know what to call it. I don't play and I know nothing about the sax. It's in a Conn case, and to my ignorant eye, looks like some of the Conn photos I've seen around here. Here are some photos of it.

Thanks for ANY info you're willing to provide.

when looking at the engraving on the bell, the lowest wire keyguard on the bottom left side would be in a mercedes 3-way shape, as opposed to a T shape for Buescher, which is what this one appears to have. correct me if I'm wrong...

from his flickr site:


if the Union stamp serial number is correct, this would be early 1900s. Is there a serial # on the back side below the thumbrest, and does it say Low or High Pitch?

I mainly came here for the basic info such as; Is it an alto?, silver plate?, year of production?. I think I found most of what I needed. Interesting history.

It will be for sale on ebay in the next day or two (user name big-steve-40). It will start low and have no reserve. This one deserves to belong to an enthusiast that will appreciate it.
