What year is this Conn?

I was curious what year this Conn 10m 'Naked Lady' was. The serial # is 754306. What year was it made? I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

      Is the 1958 a quality year?

        1958 is a good year. The 10M's made from 1934-1947 are the most valuable. They have the rolled tone holes. Those made from 1948-1962 are some of the best players. They have a great sound and better intonation than some of the earlier horns. I think 1959 was the last naked lady. The 10m's of the 60's were still pretty good horns until the MacMillan buy-out in 1969. Those with a serial number prefix of N and after are the ones to walk away from.
