I prefer all of the details to be original, just like all of the other vintage pieces that I own. Old BMW motorcycles have to be all original, non restored with original tool kits, manuals, cars the same way. With the sax, I want it to have all of the original pieces back in place. I also don’t like the modern cases with old horns- looks out of place. That’s just my opinion of course and others will have theirs.
This BA is Paris made with lake scene engraving. Some of my research shows that different cases were offered from the two different horn origins, some research says that there were multiple case offerings (mid 60’s). My 167XXX Elkhart engraved VI Alto had a chesterfield case. Thanks!
