Buescher low pitch

Does anyone know what a Buescher low pitch alto sax would be worth. Has satin silver on the outside with a gold bell. Excellent condition with original case. The number on it is 208544. Thank you.

    Thats a true tone from 1926 and worth a lot more money then the current prices they fetch on ebay , i would sit on it for a few years as they are going up in value. Dave

      Thank you for your input. The older Bueshers have a wide range for prices in this particular serial #. I had found anywhere from $800 to $9000. I wasn't sure just what it was that would bring the value up or down.

        On ebay they only go for $300- $500 which is far too low for a top quality professional instrument , thats why its best to sell private or keep it for a while Dave

          Buescher True Tone altos of that vintage usually bring between $800-$1200 in good-excellent condition. A complete sax without dings or dents, needing repairs is worth $300-$500. Tenors are worth a little more. The more valuable horns are the bass saxophones, which often sell for more than $5000, the baritones, which often go for $2500 or more, and some of the rare sopranos and sopraninos. There was a sopranino up for bids a short time ago that sold for over $6800, which really surprised me! It was in better than excellent condition though, completely restored. I'm keeping my eyes open for a TT tenor.
