What is my CG Conn Ltd. 6M VIII Naked Lady Sax Worth?

I have a CG Conn Ltd. sax in silver. It is a 6M VIII Naked Lady model. I know it was built in 46' due to its 314000's serial number, which would make it even more rare due to limited numbers being produced post world war 2 and that being the year in which the factory had a strike. It is in very good shape (no dents or dings) and all keys are in working order and still has original blue velvet carrying case. The only downside I see is that the silver is pretty tarnished (which you would expect after over 70 years). So my question to you all is, how much (based on my description) is my sax worth? and Would having the sax polished increase or decrease that value? I know antique collectors can be very particular about any work done to prospective pieces.

 

Thank you for your time,

    These are very desireable players.

    Polishing has nothing to do with value, dont touch it.

    Here is an example from saxquest who monitors this saxophone forum

    1200 is a good value for your prior to a shop visit.
