Early American Vintage C-Melody!
Here we have a vintage Frank Holton satin silver-plated C-melody sax made in Elkhorn, WI, with the serial number #17381. This saxophone plays but with a few leaks, the materials and pads are nearing their lifetimes’ end. But with that, this saxophone plays down to Bb and as high as palm F. There is no front F mechanism featured, rather a series of alternate trill keys are the main feature for this horn, for your right hand there is an alternate G#, and an alternate palm Eb trill key. Physically this horn is in fair condition for its age, there is some lacquer wear forming on the keys from use, one solder patch on the C key, some dings on the bell, and the neck does appear to have been pulled down. 
Players looking to get into a piece of American history and a C-Melody simultaneously would have an interest in this horn.
This saxophone ships as-is in its original Holton case.
