Trust me, it's good but obviously is no match against a 10M from 1935-42($3000-4500 duh).

I believe the dating would call this a Series IV (era, serial range, sheet metal guards, RTHs, no F#).

Interestingly enough, these were marketed as students saxes. all are terms that would be used to describe this one.

This is a name that is rarely if ever used in saxophone circles as far as I am aware, but it is what Conn called them through at least 1950. "Naked Lady" refers to the style of engraving that often appeared on the instruments. margaret Downie-Banks, an acknowledged expert on all things Elkhart-Conn, insists that the presence or absence of a so-called "Naked Lady" engraving or the degree of naked-ness has absolutely no relation to the instrument in terms of quality or otherwise.
