Found a saxophone

I was cleaning the basement of my grandpa and I found an old vintage saxophone, alto saxophone.
Now, I don't know much about music but with a little research it looks in pretty good condition for being almost a 100 years old.
It's a Buescher Elkhart true-tone.
I don't know if the pads are good or the mechanics olding them, but I was wondering what was the price for such a piece ?
Thank you!

    There are a lot of these.

    There are ones that are more valuable than others.

    Unfortunately, pictures are the best way to get a good answer.

     

    In general, your answer is somewhere between 250 and 750.

     

    Gold plated. Extensive engraving, newer than 1926, wear to the insrument. These are the first step questions.

     

    Good Luck
