    The serial number dates it to 1907.  It's a Buescher True Tone model.  It's more of interest as an antique than as a musical instrument, although as a low pitch saxophone it can be played with ensembles tuned to modern standards.  It being that True Tones are very common horns and there's nothing outstanding about that particular example, its main value is in the antiquarian joy that it is providing for you.
