Re: I know it's not a Selmer!
I realize that your e-mail is now nearly six years old, but it caught my eye as I was researching my own tenor sax. Mine appears to be vintage, silverplated with a serial number in the 84000 series in excellent condition. The patent date is also Dec 8, 1914, but it is stenciled as low pitch SELMER/NEW YORK horn. It has no C stencil. Did you conclude that yours was a CONN stencil? If so, what was it's value?
