    Your best bt for a value is ebay completed items.You haven't said what type of sax but if you dont know the answer is on the horn above the serial number and below the patent number. THE FIRST HORN IS A NEW WONDER SERIES ONE ,letter above will be either A -alto T-tenor S for Bb SOPRANO OR C for C sop or C melody etc. The later horn will have either B for Bb instrument (10m tenor ,4m soprano ) E for Eb instrument (6m alto or 12m baritone) Dave

      You're a little off on your years, musicman. The first horn is a 1928 New Wonder Series II or Chu Berry model. The second is a 1952 M series horn. What I don't know is rather they are alto, tenor, soprano, or baritone. I need a little more information and pictures if possible, and I can give you a ballpark appraisal. Jim

          You may want to hold on to them for a while and post an add here on Saxquest. There are several people here looking for old Conn saxophones. My email address is jimmyalber@yahoo.com. I'll get back with you soon. Jim

          I'll echo Jim's advice. Try listing them for consignment here on Saxquest first. People here are often more trusting (and therefore willing to pay more) for a Saxophone on this site than on EBAY. Of course, you could list them on EBAY With a decent reserve price so you don't need to let them go too cheap.
