saxophone CONN N 223***

Hello, excuse my English, I am French.
I have just bought an alto saxophone CONN reference N 223 ***,
I would like to know the year of production and little the history, if it is possible.
I believe that he was made to NOGALES (Arizona) ?
thank-you

    Your Saxophone was made in Mexico,

    Nogales I believe is correct, but it is Mexico. It was made in the 1970s I believe.

    There are serial number lists here on this site, under saxophone museum.

    That would give you the exact information.

        Mid-1980s student model.  It should have its countrry of origin stamped or engraved somewhere.
