No. This is a pretty early Buescher with beveled tone holes. 1920 or earlier horn, keyed to Eb. Bueschers had soldered and beveled tone holes early in the 1900's and then stopped in favor of drawn tone-holes in the late teens, early 20's.

It's an old girl for sure, but to me it reeks of Buescher.

Yeah, that puts it about 1914. Series 1a, according to Saxpics. Unfortunately, they don't have any pics of 1914 baris up there. Perhaps yours could be the first?

Actually I once worked on an old Buescher stencil Bari from the early 30's, engraved "Harwood"...and while its tube holes were drawn, its bell and bow holes were soldered....

I have a Conn Soprano that has drawn and rolled holes on the tube, drawn only on the bow and soldered on the bell.
