    That is a 1926 New Wonder Series II horn, unfortunately it is a C-Melody sax. Not a great demand for these now ersatz "C" horns in this day and age.

    All I can find Truetone Sax. It has a number 78187, low Pitch and also some letters CLKHART IND Does anyone know anything about this saxophone. It was my mothers and she played in a band back in the 1930's.
