matin tenor sax holton alto

Hi

My grandfather gave me a matin tenor sax and an alto frank holton sax,  fourty years ago to play in school. I just pulled them out of the attic and am looking for some information on them.
The martin is a low pitch serial number 71962 with metal mouthpiece.

The alto is a frank holton serial number 91114 also metal mouth piece, in silver.   
i loved playing the horns as a kid but am not in my 50's  i think they may be worth something.
Thanks in advance for anyh help you can give me

    Assuming you mean "Martin," the serial numbers put the manufacture of both of those horns at 1926.  Your Martin would be the Handcraft model, which could have some value depending on condition.  There is very little interest in old Holtons, and for good reason.

    Checking closed listings on eBay for similar horns in similar condition is a good way to get a start on estimating its private sale value.  If your Martin Handcraft lacks a front F key, it might not generate as much interest from players as the ones with one.
