Re: Silver Soprano Sax Dec 9, 1914
That is a nice soprano.
It is keyed in B flat which is correct.
L means low pitch A=440 which is correct.
The patent date and the number below it are from the maker C G Conn.
It is what is known as a stencil horn.
Stencil means somebody purchased a group of horns from Conn in this instance
and had them engraved with their own chosen logo.
Maybe as few as 10 to 25 horns. Maybe many more.
Manufactured in the 1920-1923 range.
Set up correctly it would be worth 900 or more.
It may cost you close to that to set it up correctly.
I know that because refurbishing horns is what I do for fun and why I am here.
