#19k would put it at 1965-6 by SML charts, Finish: gorgeous original lacquer body & nickel plated keys, with elements of the Gold Medal design in engraving and key guards, and rolled tone holes that date this horn to that lineage. This sax will prove to be one that perks my interest in research and tone. I already had respectable players in the shop verify that this sax is a "good one" with excellent ring to the tone.

***Bias note: I play on an SML Rev D alto.
