Pan American Alto Sax
Silver plated manufactured around 1918 by C. G. Conn Co.
Has Patent #1153489 dated Sept. 14, 1915. Serial #43460.  

This instrument has some innovations for the time such as the forked Eb and G# trill,
which  I hardly ever use. I never use the forked Eb and have deactivated it, but it can be reactivated.  
I especially like the opposing B and Bb on the bell which may be the reason why these
notes operate and sound so easily. However, it doesn't have the forked high F, and no high F#.

The silver plate gives the instrument a full sound which some people, including myself, prefer.

I have renovated the instrument to playable condition with some improvements over new.
The action is very fast for the two octave C scale.
I have polished the silver plate which is approximately 90% intact.

The case is not original and the velvet is a little worn.
