Ser.# m234,xxx dates to 1930.  Excellent condition "Chu" with nailfile G#, rolled tone holes, tuning neck, Goldwash bell, everything we love.  Original gold plate and Satin gold highlights model, in very nice overall condition.  Now, if you've never played a Chu, they are stunningly powerful altos...big fat sound top to bottom.  Ergos are not that great, but I  know a lot of players that play them in spite of the 20's design and would never switch to a Selmer.   I will repad it, with a Conn-style, french standard repad. Pairing an original old Conn case to go with it.
