Baldwin Special Alto Sax

Hi I am new to Saxquest and am just starting to learn to play. Does anyone have any info on a Baldwin Special Alto there is no serial number the word Baldwin is written in Capital letters vertically down the Bell and the word Special is written across the bell I was wondering if it might have made when the Martin bros were hand making their Saxes at the Baldwin St plant in Elkhart Ind Any info would be greatly appreciated Thx Dan

      Definitely not a Martin.  Looks like it came from one of the factories that produced Vitos during the 1950s or 60s.

        The bell brace is typical of horns made by the French firm of Beaugnier.
