I've found a rather interesting Conn. It's a C Mel, Serial: 29xxx. This should be either 1914 or 1915, According to Saxpics.com.
Features:
Gold Keytouches.
Straight Tone-holes.
Front F key.
Engraved "C.G. Conn" (Without LTD)
G# is same as other keys, just a gold keytouch. (Opposed to the smooth or nailfile)
Neck is not a micro-tuner.
Engraving is not one of the "standard seven." Though pretty close...

Thoughts? Ideas? Can't get pictures right now..

Thanks,

First thing to check would be if it is a High Pitch horn. Not usable today. Also it may have a double octave key but they disappeard a few years earlier.

Well it sold now.. But it was a single octave, and low pitched. I meant to put that in the features.
Someone stole it for $100.00

Thanks,
