I have an old soprano sax from my great grand father. It's straight and says "Shattinger Special" on the bell. The serial number is 113553 low pitch and has a license PAT. of DEC.8, 1912. The last number of the date could also be a 4, 1914. It's silver in color and the case has no name on it.
I also have a C. G. Conn from him. It's gold colored and has a beautiful portrait engraving of a lady on the bell with some nice motifs around it. I used this in jr. high band for a while before they moved me to the baritone sax.. school owned instrument.
If you guys or gals have any info on the soprano sax it would be much appreciated!
