What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is a Selmer Mark VI Saxophone, serial number 80275. Selmer records date this piece to 1958 (https://www.conn-selmer.com/en-us/resources/serial-numbers/henri-selmer-paris-instrument-serial-numbers) and its model to a Mark VI.

Condition of the saxophone appears to be in good played condition with original lacquer, showing wear including pitting and scratches in high use areas. Per the current owner, the piece was acquired via inheritance. Selmer Mark VI saxophones from this early in its production run do not appear in traditional auction settings often, instead appearing on resale marketplaces such as Reverb.com and eBay frequently enough to form a basis for reliable comparable sales. In consideration of the factors noted, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece would be estimated between $4,000 and $8,000.
