Very concise response, maestro Jaye. Thank you for the prices, that was a nice extra and really puts things in perspective. I do appreciate everyone's opinion. Yeah it's not a good deal, but I also wanted to learn a bit more about the horn(s) I haven't seen before. It's always good to learn something new.Plus the Beaugnier Tenor
asuming all in good shape, no serious/significant body dents or dings, relatively clean, playing up and down
Comm 3 Alto = $1500
Holton Collegiate Tenor = $600
Beaugnier Vito Tenor = $850
Couf Superba 2 Tenor = $1850
Total market values = $4800usd
Every one of these horns is a good, solid example of a vintage sax. The Collegiate is the low card in the deck - it is a second-shelfer, so, while quite respectable and along the lines of a Conn Director or King Cleveland....it isn't particularly special or sought after.
Is that total around the current market value of your era of VI ?
If not close, it is ....as others have gleaned, not a good deal.
In which case...the way you communicate to the offerer "no thanks".... is up to you, of course
