Unknown Tenor Sax type / model => engraved "ACE"

Hy all,

A family member bought a tenor sax engraved ACE (see pictures) a long time ago. He doesn't remember the seller, nor the manufacturer of the instrument.

I'd like to know the details of this instrument (manufacturer, model, experiences, ...). Google has not made me any wiser, I never read something about an ACE-engraved tenor sax.

Could someone help me out?

Does it say made in West Germany?

I am almost certain this is a Dörfler & Jörka made saxophone, they are worth a bit less than Keilwerths and yours doesn't look like it is in very good shape so, that affects the value quite a bit for a horn like this. The lacquer looks very strange and is badly flaking off.

Probably made in the '60.

Interestingly it has a high F# (or ist it a high D trill?), rolled toneholes.

They made stencils under many many names, this would have been one of them. Not much of a muchness but if well adjusted
What would this saxophone be worth?
