    Nickel plated alto, 1923-ish, 600 or so in top condition for a dealer, less for a private sale.  Having it inspected by a good repairman so you can answer customer questions would be worth your while.

      I have a C G Conn Curved either Tenor or Soprano Sax  Model #1119954 with a T under and serial number M203569 with a L under.  I spoke with Steve Goodson about it and also spoke to C G Conn.  The patent date on mine is Dec. 8, 1914, unfortunately C G Conn burnt down in 1913 and they have no records to help.  Is there a way to find value, original owner and so forth....as well as, and most importantly what type of Sax it is.  Thanks

        The "T" means it is a tenor.  The "L" stands for low pitch, meaning it is playable to modern tuning standards.  The 1119954 is a patent number that was put on Conn saxophones after 1914.  The M203569 number is its serial number, which indicates a production date of 1928.  There is some market demand for that model and vintage, but its value depends on a number of things as outlined to the lead poster.  Start with the site linked in that response, considering all the caveats very carefully.
