    Martin "Handcraft model from about 1927.  "Low pitch" means it is tuned to A=440 Hz, which is the international standard.  Sweet sounding horns, worth holding onto as a player.

        See what Martin altos of that vintage are going for on eBay.  Yours would not be a top dollar example because a relacquer and past repairs are always a hit against the value, but your pictures show newer pads, which is important.
