    It was made by Conn. In the 1921ish range.

    It was considered a stencil horn and does not have all the bells and whistles a horn engraved Conn would have.

    i.e. front F key and rolled tone holes.

    It is an Alto. L means keyed A=440 which is correct to use today.

    Value 100 bucks as a fun project to get playing.

    Nice unaltered original raw brass finish. Dont shine it....

    That is one of its value points.

    Good Luck
