Re: Vintage Conn C melody
The Conn Straight-neck C Melody saxophones with a microtuner neck manufactured 1922 and after are the most valuable. The curved neck models generally do not bring as much money. Yours would be worth more for 2 reasons; one, it was made before the sale of Conn to C.D. Greenleaf, and two, most likely it has a union label stamp. I would keep this horn as original as possible and I wouldn't put a lot of money into it. If you are looking for a C Melody sax to play, I would search Ebay for one of the later straight neck Conns.
