Is it a Conn or not? A short mystery

I have a silver sax that has same patent number as many other Conn"s I have seen with same Dec. 8, 1914. The Bell says "Perfection" made in U.S.A. Bruno N.Y. It is a C Low tone and s/n is P14234. Is this a Conn??? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Yes Perfection was a stencil name used by conn AND ,i think buescher. Perfectone was conn and bruno was conn so i would say its a conn stencil especially if its got the C above the serial number and the serial number has the letter P as a prefix. Dave

      I have a similar horn that I am trying to put a value on. The differences are: there is no letter before the serial number, it says "Low Pitch" not "Low Tone", it has no "C" above the serial number either. Can someone help me out?

          I have a C soprano Perfection Bruno and it is without doubt a Buescher stencil.

        What if it has an "A" instead of a "C" above the serial number?

          Usually and "A" means it's an alto.
