This is a "Armstrong" (Elkhart-IND U.S.A) Tenor Saxaphone in decent condition. The model # is 2846743. There are some signs of wear, around the instrument. But overall in decent condition. I have multiple photos as well attached.
This instrument belonged to my Father. He was a Big Jazz lover & enthusiast ! He would play the instrument, on and off as a hobby. I don't know much about the history of the instrument. I would like to find out, after the appraisal.
