I ran across one of these locally offered for sale... only 2 pictures of it so no idea what kind of stencil it is. I've read here that they were made by Martin or Conn, etc. The seller said it's probably from the "50s or 60s" but based on the type of case it's in which he says is original it looks a lot like the one my old '37 Conn is in.

Assuming it's in playable condition, are these good horns? He only wants $200 for it. I'm guessing you'll need more information...

A mercedes logo/style keyguard over low C, as well as a T above the serial number and L below it should confirm whether or not its a Conn. Beveled tone holes should confirm a Martin. If it's truly a tenor and not completely wrecked, either stencil would be worth it for two hundred bucks or less; even needing overhaul.

Cool thanks, I'll ask for better pics/more info.
