True Tone Low Pitch

My father has a True Tone Low Pitch Sax Liscense # T.Dec. 8. 1914 His father gave it to him when he joined the band. It still in it's original case. It hasn't been played in years. He is wanted to sell it or find someone who can get some use out of it. Any helpful information would be appreciated.

    I to have a Buescher Low Pitch Saxophone dated Dec. 8, 1914. Serial # 152457  I purchased it at a garage sale about 25 years ago and have never none what it is really worth.  Would like to get it repadded and cleaned, but really want to know what it is worth first.

    Closed listing on eBay for comparable horns are a good place to get an idea of what the market is doing.  Here's another source with some general estimates.  Be sure to read the caveats.

    Complicating the picture is the fact that True Tones changed a lot as the 1920s wore on.  Horns with serial numbers above 200xxx have improved keywork that makes them much more valuable than earlier horns to players.
