    It's a student/intermediate horn from the 1960s, comparable to a Martin Indiana.  Well made, not a bad horn at all.  Checking closed listings on eBay and doing a net search are good ways to good ways to get an idea of its market value.

      Actually at 314xxx this could be a very good saxophone. Can you post a few photos of it here in the forum or at the least, let us know exactly what it says on the bell. I have a The Martin Magna tenor also with serial number 314xxx as well that's a great top-shelf professional line saxophone. Interestingly, the serial number runs vertically up the back side of the body tube as opposed to horizontal like you normally see. Check out the Georgie Auld tenor posted in the museum section of this web site. Its a full-on professional model Martin Magna with serial number 570xxx. Here's the link to it.
