A Nickle Plated C. G. Conn but what year?

Can anyone tell me what year this was made and if it's a Tenor or a C melody Sax. Its a C G Conn Pan American but I can't find the year it was made. I think it was a maybe a mid 20's but not sure.

    Definitely a tenor and most likely a 20's vintage saxophone, could also be early 30's. Unfortuantely, there's no way to date stencils other than by the keywork to get a rough estimate of year of manufacture.

      Thanks Mark, do you know if these are good sounding sax's. I just bought it and it's in great condition, I just don't know what mouthpiece would sound best with these. I'm thinking maybe a Brilhart Ebolin 3
