I recall seeing a website on York saxophones. It may be still on line. There was a serial number list. Somewhere around 1925 York stopped buying Buescher stencils and built their own horns. They are based on the small bore Buescher, but have the toneholes soldered on a long metal plate, which is then soldered onto the the pre-holed body of the horn. This makes for a rather heavy horn, with a mellow sound. York never aimed at the professional market and even though their horns are as well-built as other makes, they are considered school band horns for the most part and can be purchased for a low price. Good luck with your underrated York.
