conn new wonder series 1 alto 1924

Looking at buying a 1924 conn new wonder series 1 alto sax from a old fellow across the street. looks like brushed silver outide, gold color inside bell, bright silver keys. Looks in great shape & he says he had new kangaroo pads installed last year--they look good. Have not played it yet--need a mouthpiece. He wants $650.00 for it with a ok case. serial # 128***. Any idea if it is worth it or if he (or I) don't have clue? HEL

    If you like the horn, 650 is a decent price.

    Rollers should move freely, known to be fused on these horns.

    You could probably haggle it down 50 bucks if you tried.

    Here is a "retail" example for sale.

    Good Luck
