what year is my bundy tenor?

I've had this horn since the late 70s, and I think my parents purchased it used. I ended up a bassist, and never really picked it up. On the bell it says: BUNDY H&A Selmer Inc. On the back theres a number: 30499 Can anyone tell me anything about this horn, date and value? It's in decent shape, some tarnish, probably needs new pads from sitting in the case for all these years? I want to sell it but want to find out this info first. Thank you! AJ

      That sax would have been made between 65-70. I couldn't find a specific year, but it was between those two, probably right about in the middle, maybe 67. I'm not an appraiser, so i couldn't tell you how much its worth, but if it plays well and is in good condition, u could at least gt a few hundred, maybe a thousand if its in really good condition.

        thanks for the info, that's a great start for me! I'm going to let a sax player friend of mine check it out and see if it's still playable this week, then hopefully sell it on ebay.

          If you can get some pictures, that would be nice. I have a lot of friends that play tenor, as well as myself, who might be interested. I would say wait a bit before jumping to ebay. Post some pics though, that would be great.
