Finish: Silver plated

This is a very interesting, and extremely rare JK. It was also the pride and joy of the owner, who kept it until his death, despite having sold the rest of his horns.

This King Imperial is the first, and so far only, JK that I have seen that has eyebrow key guards. I have passed it by a number of saxophone historians and JK experts, and no one has seen or heard of one like this before.

Presumably JK produced these in extremely limited numbers, or only upon special request. Based on its serial #, this horn is circa 1937.
