Conn Tenor Saxophone

A friend of mine gave an old Conn tenor sax. I don't know much about it. It reads:

PATD DEC 8, 1914

Can anybody tell me what kind of saxophone is? From what year?  Anything you can tell me?Thanks in advance.

    It's a Conn New Wonder model tenor, low pitch, from 1923.  As a Low Pitch horn it is playable to modern tuning standards.  They're nice sounding horns, but certain aspects of them are challenging for players and techs.
