Amazing stuff ! I wonder if that's Jules Stenberg's work ?

Looks like a late True Tone, also . What serial number ?

It is a beauty. I'm envious. Is it gold plated?

Some of the Conn engravers used to do custom work to other companies as well as to individuals to get extra cash. This seems to be originally ordered by Buescher from one of the Conn egravers.
Beautiful! May I ask what you paid for this one of a kind horn?

My guess, just looking at the photos, is that it is gold plated. Looks like some of the gold plating has worn off, exposing the underlying silver plate. And some of the silver is a bit tarnished.

Wow, Liam, you certainly know how to tempt Roger :cool: into 'one last one'! It's breathtaking. A stunner.
I wish that where the case. Since Roger retired I'm really stuck for a good repair tech up here.

The owl kills me hiding behind the octave key arm.
Yes! I was so happy to find the little owl. What a nice little touch. The auction house had put up very mediocre photos of the sax so it was really nice discovering all the subtle details in the engravings when I got it.

Looks awesome. Does it also have a player history to it?

What an absolutely beautiful horn. Definitely looks like the work of the top Conn engravers.

That horn deserves a restoration by a really top-tier tech. You won't find many like that.
