1915 International

I just purchased a 1915 International Alto Saxophone made in Elkhart Indiana.  It looks very much like a Conn, and I was wondering if anyone has heard of it before.

      1915 is the patent date, not the production date.  It could well be a Conn "stencil" horn.  Stencil horns were horns produced for merchandisers to market under their own brands.  There's not a lot else to say unless there are some pictures that show identifying features.
