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 !!

Thanks so much for the info Stitch. If my memory serves me right, it does resemble an early model Conn and you are right, the keys are nickel and not silver.
The Bell, and bore just iinside the bell are approx 1/4" larger than my Yamaha Tenor and the larger curve in the neck brings the MPC down quite a bit lower than any of the other Tenors I have owned.
I'm going to fashion an extension the the G# key so as it is easier to operate.
Thanks again for your input.
Cheers, Bill.
