York soprano sax from Grand Rapids,MI. cont....

it seems to play fairly decent,the c key sounds alittle flat,but over all not bad. Does anyone know anything about this brand. I bought it because it's the city I live in and at one time my uncle used to work there. also is there a way I can find out the year for sure .serial # is worn. can only make out 3 numbers.

    there are serial number charts for york made (not stencilled for) saxophones. Yours is made by york because of the address on the sax. Can you get a magnifying glass and look at the serial number and determine how many numbers there is and to date it correctly you do need at least the first number correct 4 fig number 1897 -1901 5 fig number 1901-1933 6 fig number 1933-1938 when they ceased manufacturing Dave
