I picked up an early 1930's Conn Transitional alto sax a couple weeks ago at a yard sale. It came in this black case that is probably the original case the horn came in.

However, I also have a New Wonder alto in a case that is a Conn case but not the original case for that horn.

I am getting ready to take both horns up to have the Transitional rebuilt and put the NW for sale on consignment. Before I do that I wanted to get your opinions on whether the black case is the original case for the Transitional or if the brown case that came with the NW is perhaps the correct case style for the transitional.

Thanks so much, I really appreciate the amazing amount of knowledge here.

Well you already got your answer, but yes:

I guess the cool thing to do back then was to cover your case with college stickers.
My case has stickers from hotels in Seattle and Portland, which seems a step down in coolness.

thanks
