low pitch sax

I have a saxaphone that says "premier american" on the front and "low pitch A, 3560" on the back. I believe it is a silver matte finish with a goldtone bell. Does anyone have any informtion about this particular sax as to date of origin or resale price?

    Re: low pitch sax

    This is a Martin Stencil. I have one that was my first alto when I started playing 45 years ago and it is still my favorite alto, out of many, today. Mine has a high front F and a forked E flat key that the cup is actually in the front of the horn down by the E flat C pinkey keys that have the rollers, those bow cups.

     

    I have seen them without the front F, but the forked E flat around the front seems to be generic with this design. The Low Pitch A and serial is also generic with them.

    Not big value, maybe 650 if it is playing nicely with a newer set of pads. I love them and can always find them under 200 bucks needing some work.
