my vintage conn alto sax..what are the specs

I want to know about my sax. Its dark gold conn sax. The only name on the bell is CONN with stars around it. The only number is the s/n # 4901. No letters around the s/n or anything else. Nothing on the neck either. I just wish I knew something about my old sax. thanks
