1925 buescher sax

I was just wondering if anyone had information on a straight soprano sax made in 1925 by buescher. Gold plated straight but the short version. I have one just had it recondition, just wonder what value it has!!

    short version? Is it a C Soprano? They're a little shorter than a Bb soprano. Buescher True Tone right? Reconditioned they're worth $900-$1100.

      They tell me its a soprano(sapernino) sax it has leather pads instead of felt ones. And your right it is a little shorter. Thank You for your help!

        Sopraninos are very rare, and pitched in Eb, They're only about 11 inches tall. Almost all saxophones have leather pads. The C Soprano is in between the 2 and pitched in the key of C. They are also quite rare but more common than a Sopranino. A Buescher sopranino would be a highly collectable horn, and worth considerably more than a soprano
