Fixya does not do appraisals.

Go to a music store "REAL" one and get it appraised and just look around on ebay; there are ones for sale there.

I can't find a reference to 'NR'. Looking just at the serial number, the Selmer scheme shows it should be indeed, a Mk VI made in 1969 or 1970.

If that is so it may be worth from $4000-5500 depending on condition. To be certain I'd have it professionally valued.

It would have been made about 1985, although records are not exact. It is a redesigned Aristocrat.

Hi Erica.

Conn/Selmer has a web page with dating for a number of their affiliate instruments, though it doesn't look to be complete.
Serial Numbers If it was lumped in with the Conn 'Reed Mouthpiece' Instruments (as opposed to cup mouthpiece, which I'd think of as more 'brass', then it'd look to be 1899. The Artley Flute list starts with a serial # of 10000 in 1952. There appear to be other people out there having difficulty using their charts, and the Customer service page on the website is mum about contacting them directly, and suggests calling a nearby dealer. The dealer page is at
Dealer Locator Conn Selmer Inc

The description makes it sound like an Omega Model, see for instance

Hoping that helps.., and Happy Holidays

I have 51 years experience as a sax player. A new listed price for this saxophone is $7319.00 on sale. Optional finishes would include silver plate-Add $940.00. Gold plate- Add $12,490.00. Better deals can be had from private sales and from various music stores. In my opinion there are better saxophones although I have owned a Paris Selmer tenor sax since 1967.

This can be caused by a poor seal on one of the valve pad seals. You should be able to find which one(s) by simple opening or closing valves to see which changes or stops it.

The pad will just have a crack in it and isn't sealing properly. If you have a instrument or music store that sells instruments they may have a instore tech or will know of one. You might even be able to find one through a local school if they have a band and so on. I have no idea of your location so can't suggest more than that. The repair is cheap and quick and is just replacing the pad with a new one.

Sounds like a hole is plugged somewhere. Shine a strong light up/down inside it and see if you can see any blockage.
