Value and Year Made of a Bb Tenor Sax made by Holton

I have a Bb Tenor Sax made by Frank Holton with a serail number of 21542 amd LP below the serial number. I believe it was made in 1925 ot 1917 I am not sure. Does anyone have any idea when it was made? I am also concerdering selling it, but am looking for what kind of value it holds. It plays really nice.

    Your sax dates to 1925 not 1917. Holton first started making saxophones in 1915 and a 1917 date would definitely have a much lower serial number and would also be stamped Chicago instead of Elkhorn, WI. A number of 21542 on an LP Holton would definitely suggest a manufacture date of 1925.

      I also have an Olds Alto Sax with a SN of

      NA 621

      481334

      R.O.C.

       

      That is how is it appears on the horn. I am looking at selling both this and the Holton Bb Tenor, but would like to know what their value it before I put them up for sale.

      So what would one say the vaule is for this one?
