Please help me with my sax?

Hey guys. Total sax Noob here....I inherited a sax from my late father, and since I don' play and as it' been in storage for almost 10 yrs, I think it' time to send it off to a good home. Problem is, I can' figure out how much it' worth, and even searching the serial nr, nothing comes up. 
If someone here can please help me figure this out, I thought having all this info would help such as the model name etc, but I'm failing miserably.
It's the Martin tenor Elkhart sax, serial nr 155429. I have attached a few pics too

Please please help me

    The Martin is a good tenor worthy of a good home.  The serial number on yours corresponds to a 1946 production date.

    Here's a guide to expected dealer prices for various used horns.  Keep in mind that as a private seller you would get less and that condition affects the value of a used horn profoundly.

    You can also get a good idea of a reasonable price by checking the closed sale listings for similar horns on ebay.
