This horn has an interesting history. According to the seller, Hammerschmidt saxophones were the preferred saxophones for a division of the German military. The Bundeswehr-Musikkorps used Klingsor saxophones during the 1960s.

Although this is the first that I have I have read about this, the BW-H10-Z-S engraving would indicate that this quite possibly the case. If nothing else, this horn appears to have belonged to the Bundeswehr.

Given the spotty intonation of this late model series of Hammerschmidt saxophones (after the neck redesign), I can't imagine that the Musikkorps used a great many of them. All it would take would be to get a few with incorrectable intonation, and I would think that the Bundeswehr would go to another German horn maker for their saxophones. Mmm... I wonder who that would be??

This is obviously just speculation on my part, based on what the seller wrote. He could be misinformed, or mistaken.
