This is a really cool saxophone. It is a Chu Berry vintage Conn curved soprano, serial number 212545. It has all the great features of the "Chu" including the file G# key, split bell keys and rolled toneholes. It was plated in nickel post production, leaving the engraving a bit faint, but really improving the sound and response. Nickel Conn's are the most responsive and free blowing saxes out there. This one has a range to high F, and is in the key of Bb.
The phyiscal condition is excellent. There are NO dents, 2 minor chair dings on the bottom bow and one repaired dent in that area. There are NO resoldered joints anywhere on this soprano.
This horn plays very well in tune and has an even scale from top to bottom. It is both a nice collectors piece and a great playing professional level saxophone.
