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 VII Tenor Saxophone, serial number 244524. Selmer records date this piece to 1975 (https://www.conn-selmer.com/en-us/resources/serial-numbers/henri-selmer-paris-instrument-serial-numbers) and thus its model to a Mark VII.
Condition of the saxophone appears to be in good played condition, with presumably original lacquer, showing some wear. Selmer Mark VII tenor saxophones 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 $2,500 and $3,000.
