Buescher tenor sax - 24" and 30"

I have two vintage Buescher tenor saxes...24" (S/N 71969) and 30" (S/N 74778). Why the difference in length from tenon to bow? I'm not familiar with saxophones...need some help! Thanks in advance!!

    The 24" is a C, and the 30" is a Bb

      Thanks for your quick reply. I've been reading the 16 pages of discussion on vintage saxophones and looks like the C Melody tenor is not as valuable as the other one. These were both played in the Firemen's Saxophone Band in Minneapolis MN back in the 1920's. Time to sell....
