Friend of mine has a model M Conn Saxophone that he has owned for over 60 years. Has not played in the last ten or twenty years. Represents that it is in good shape and he did, within the past 5 years, have it gone over and put in shape.

He is considering selling and is trying to find out its approximate worth.

Any Ideas??

Yes.

Go to ebay and search the completed sales for the saxophones that are most like your friend's sax.

That way you will have some notion of what the market looks like.

OK...well a 'model M' is NOT actually a model designation for a Conn . It can refer to two things:

either the serial prefix on a 1968-69 horn, which could either be an Artist series or Director series - or the serial prefixes used on their Artist series horns of the 30's-40's.

As you have gleaned, nobody here can tell exactly what model (or era) this horn may actually be without photos.

+1 on sending in photos. And if possible, the beginning portion of the serial number (you can mask the last 2 or 3 digits)
