Help, Trying to Find out about Sax

I have a saxophone that my father had as a child and I later dabbled on while playing the oboe. The sax has etching on it and says American Knight. It says made in czech, and has the patent number 64402. I do not have the mouth piece and the brass is tarnished. The lever for the top register is slightly bent but I can fix it. I am trying to find out it's value to see if it should be insured or not. Any info you can provide would be most appreciated. thank you in advance.

      It's probably worth next to nothing, as I've never heard of "American Knight" or any decent Czech made saxophone. Why would you insure it anyway?

        I am trying to insure all items of value in the house. I have my oboe insured already

          Yeah, don't bother. Even if it's in top shape it's probably only worth about 200 or so, maybe less.

          They're worth $200-$300 in good shape. They're not a very valuable horn and are considered student model. I wouldn't even bother fixing it honestly. It might make a nice wall piece or a lamp.
