      Hello Kelsey Am I to assume that you can't identify its date and type? If not, I have to wonder why you replied at all..?

        Hello Rickmcm!! If you would take the time to read the post right under your question, you would see the Conn time line, that will tell you about your horn. I saw no reason to tell you something that is right before your eyes already.

          You wrote that you "..saw no reason to tell you something that is right before your eyes already.." so instead you posted a reply that was a waste of your time writing it, and a waste of my time reading it.

          10M is a pro line tenor. The serial number puts it around 1965. I don't know what's in anybody else's closet, but I've got a 10M in mine. Though less sought-after than earlier examples, the later 10Ms are great players for sure. Big sound, built sturdy and once you get used to the feel the keywork is just fine. Blow your horn and enjoy- just remember after dark some of us are trying to sleep!
