Conn Shooting Star Alto four digit serial # starting with V
I recently acquired a Conn Shooting Star Alto with the serial number
Made in the USA V-33xx
The bell is stenciled Conn USA
It has sheet metal guards.
My research so far is contradictory, to say the least.
My guess is that it's an M50 made in Nogales, AZ in the early 60s.
It might also have been made in Elkhart before the move and it might be a Vito Kenosha 38 made of French parts in either location.
The 'V' might stand for Vito and it might stand for factory 2nd.
There is so much lore surrounding Conn of this period.
Any help would appreciated.
