    A serial number of 257626 would indicate that this horn was built in 1933 www.drrick.com/conn.html This would be a transitional model tenor, most likely an early 10M. Does this tenor have both the B and Bb keys on the same side of the bell or on opposite sides? What is the engraving on the bell? Lacquered, gold or silver? Does the horn have a Nail file (cross hatched) G# key? It's probably more like a 10M than a Chu Berry (New Wonder Series II) but may have characteristics of both horns.

      The markings I find on it are: C.G.Conn Ltd. with :Elkhart Ind-USA on one side and what appears to be: "maybedy" on the other side, this is located on the front of the bell. It also has a girls face below that on the front also. I believe it is lacquered brass. It has been years since I have played it so I am not sure of the B and Bb. It has a nail file on the forth finger,left side...it has ivory keys.
