Several years ago I got an alto sax at a second hand shop for my son after
he watched blues Bros, with box labelled VKohlerts Sons Factory Grazlitz
Chechoslavakia, sax teacher said it was a Jass sax with a split key?,- he
lost interest,
I want to sell this, had it renoved by a repairer Andrea Brown, Victoria
Aus
She told me it was from around 1917, has a Z on inside of bend below horn,
mother of pearl keys, 5 petal flowerwith leaves engraved on bell around
name VKohlertsSons Graslitz Chechoslavakia, small s in Kohlerts is a bit
above other lettersd ,S in sons has line through it, can't find any serial
numbers, but it is waiting to sing, I am composer and have made custom
guitars, dragon shaped cello and double bass, how do I identify this
instrument, seems to be silver when cleaned, and plumbing is OK but
corks probably dry? I can send photos if you like, probably has antique
value, owes me $1100 Aus about 10 years ago- so what do I do with it, does
anyone care.Regards Paul Walker, Victoria Australia

I am not sure this is an ad or a request for information. Anyway , you would be better advised to post a picture of your horn (although your description is very thorough . You could find out about the model in your possession onto these reference site http://www.saxpics.com/?v=gal&c=1538 it is the best source on line (even though there are some pages not working and imperfections here and there).
I honestly doubt that the market (here or anywhere else) would respond so favourably to your saxophone as to meet your fairly high expectations. I am afraid that you would recuperate , at most, a fraction of the money that you seem to have been putting into this horn.
