Serial # 223890 (Circa 1929) (LP). Original Plating is nearly 97-98%. Check out the photos and you will see that the Original Silver Plating on this Alto only shows slight wear, and the wear to the original plating is mostly ar the touch points, consistent with normal use.
I've oiled the Keys and all keys perform properly. And, The Mother or Pearl Rollers work well. The pads on this Alto are very tired, and this Great Vintage Chu-Berry Alto will need a New set of Pads before it can produce the Great Vintage sound it was meant to, the recognizible sound of a Vintage Conn. The New Owner will be only the 2nd owner/player of this nearly 100 year old Classic Alto. Conn Chu-Berry's from the 200,000 serial number (1927 - 1929) are very desirable.
The 3 Plam Keys are all the Long Tear Drop style; and of course this Conn has the infamous Micro Tuner Neck (works very well) and, Rolled Tone Holes. The Bell is has the Gold Wash (See Photos), and check ou the photos and you will see that the conditio of the Gold Wash is Excellent. I see no signs of prior repair(s).
The Original Case is a is in Very Nice condition. The Safety latch works well, and both latches work, but one currently does not secure tightly. Any questions let me know and thanks for taking a look.
