(footnote - Higham was a Manchester based maker/importer which in the 30s traded as the Premier Drum Co.)MAGNA Regd Made Specially For Permier (sic?) Higham in Bohemia
Many other makers used RTHs of course, and it couldn't be a Conn if made in Bohemia, but I think I've seen Penn Specials with the full pearls; don't know about the posts though.This saxophone has rolled tone holes which tells you that it is either a Pen Special, a Conn or a Keilwerth. If you then examine the posts you can see that they are the unique sausage like Keilwerth posts that are still of the same design today and the keywork is also of early Keilwerth design. Hope this helps.
Who made yours Randall?Randall said:BTW, I have a nearly identical horn here on my desk, right now, with right hand bell keys and tortoise shell "pearls" on all the side keys, table keys, and right hand pinky keys.
Neat horns and fantastic players!!!
