One of the most sought after 6M's here: Silver, VIII stamp, Rolled Tone holes, in great shape! #309k, highly sought after! It has conn reso-pads installed--older, and plays well (see Sound File below). Goldwash bell. "U.S." stamp on the bell is in a fancy script. Matching case with the "US" stamp! Notes from the owner: "pads were addressed/replaced at Sax Alley in Colorado a few (2?) yrs ago."
We just recently polished it to remove the surface tarnish and display the true luster of this sax!
