I would really appreciate any information regarding the origin etc for this sax.
The name engraved on the front is LINCOLN Made in USA and under the thumb hook it has the letters: P ID Sept,14,1915.
The body of the sax is gold laquered, one piece body and bell with silver plated keys mechanisms & pads. Also the G# key is chunky and you have to stretch the pinky to reach it. There is no adjustment on any part of the linkages and for all that, the sax is easy to blow, in tune and has a big sound. I have owned several Altos & Tenors for the past 50 + years and have never seen or heard of this brand of Sax before.
Any help in identifying the manufacturer or other information regarding this instrument would be greatly appreciated...Thanks...

P.S. I have a photo of the Instrument but not sure how to add it to this thread !!

Actually there are many more possibilities Kudik.

The fact that one Lincoln (OP's) was ever made as a Conn stencil wouldn't necessarily mean that all Lincoln saxophones have anything other than the name in common.

It's a name that is almost certainly not Trademark registered and there fore used and possibly abused often.

Anyway the example show by Kudik is most certainly NOT a Conn saxophone and I have some doubts it is even Chinese while I am almost certain it is not Taiwanese.

First of all it appears there are more Indonesian ( I think) Lincoln Saxophone owners, which makes it likely that this is a fantasy trademark used by some importer in Indonesia.

It could be a Vietnamese or Chinese sax but they tend to do things which look more modern and almost never show that type of bell to body brace which, if anything is reminescent of Saxophones that I used to see here (and avoid called Stephenson).
