CONN Baritone Sax help!

Hi, I'm just beginning to learn Baritone Saxophone. My grandpa gave me this Conn 12m. He bought it from Ebay this New Year. I don't know if it is reconditioned or whatever. The keys are playing well so it seems. Please help me identify the year and where it was made. It seems to be in great shape. Serial number is 730551. Attached some pics for your reference.

 

Regards!

Dave

    Made in 1958 or 1959. If a Conn has "Elkhart, Indiana" on the bell it was made in Elkhart, Indiana.

          Yes, this would be considered an M Series "Naked Lady". Its a non-rolled tone hole Conn 12M Naked Lady bari sax. See the meuseum section of this web site for photos of other examples.
