Question About Bundy Sax - Is It a Kielwerth?

Hello,

I hope this post finds everyone well.

I just picked up a vintage Bundy sax and am hoping that someone with expertise might be able to tell me more about it.

The serial number is 420786 and it says "bundy h&a selmer" on the side.

Is this a Kielwerth? I think it was manufactured circa 1965 but am uncertain. If it is a Kielwerth, assuming it's in playable condition with slightly thin pads, can anyone hazard a rough estimate of what it might be worth?

Any insight sincerely appreciated as I'm a noob.

Thanks in advance!

    Keilwerth made "Bundy Special" saxophones in the 1950s.  They had rolled toneholes.  The 1960s Bundys were based on the Buescher Aristocrat.  They can go for a few hundred in absolute top condition.

      the Bundy Special horns were made in the 1960's not the 1950's.....they were MADE by Keilwerth, but they are Bundy's, NOT Keilwerths.....if memory serves me correctly they have "made in Germany" stamped on the lower portion of the body tube....they're OK horns, and you can buy them quite cheaply
