Which Cannonball did we buy? Is it a good one?

We just bought a Cannonball Alto Sax online. It has the follow specs:

Engraving says 1998 Salt Lake City
Serial # 102458
Black laquer finish with silver keys.

Someone sold it on consignment. We're expecting to service it before my daughter takes it to high school. She's moving up from an Antigua Winds, which she says is a horrible sax.

Did we buy a good horn? Is there anything special we need to know about this horn? Which one did we buy?

Thanks for any information you can give us.

I can post a picture or two if it will help. Can we post pictures on here? This is my first thread on this forum. Thanks!
The site is confusing! Does this mean we have an A 1998 Knight High F#? The range, I think, was 100889-103244, if I was reading it correctly.

There are no close up pictures. I read on another site that Cannonballs are very delicate.

Does anyone have an opinion about this model? (If that's what we have...)

Thanks again!

I just shopped around some more and found a Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II Model 52. Advertised as mint. This one is much better, right?
