Greetings!

I did some Google searching and didn't come up with much. I have a Tenor Saxophone that I purchased USED in the late 1980's. Played it for about a year and haven't touched it since.

On the bell it is engraved with "Linton" and a design, HOWEVER it does NOT have Elkhardt, Ind engraved on it. Serial number is 17,XXX with no letters.

See attachments for a couple pics of the engraving on mine.

I also found this picture on the web of a similar Sax that is identified as a Malerne stencil. Same key work and styles, but the engraving in the pic shows Elkhardt, Ind, which mine does not have:

Similar to my Martin Bari that I posted about last week, I am trying to find out if it is worth making playable again? Is it a student model, intermediate, pro? When was it made? General idea of worth? Any and all info appreciated!

Thanks!

Sure has pretty engraving :) . My best guess would be intermediate, but I could be wrong. Any pictures of the LH cluster, neck, bell brace, Fork and palm keys. This could help identify it. Also serial number (first 3 numbers followed by Xs) would help.
Serial number is 17,xxx

I'll post up some more pics in a couple minutes

Attached Pics of Left Hand cluster, neck, bell brace, Right Hand palm, Left Hand Palm.

Couldn;t figure out what the "fork" was?

1st picture is of the "Fork F/E" mechanism.

Now all we need is the Low Bb Cluster (the left hand cluster I mentioned). This piece goes by so many names it's rediculous!
Ahh, think this is what you mean?
