According to the seller:

"Conn did stamp their horns with [the union] label from 1906 to 1916. Here is a nice explanation from the curator of the National Music Museum in South Dakota: 'The Metal Polishers, BrassWorkers and Platers Union of Elkhart was organized in 1901. Five years later, in 1906, a little more than a year after the company's incorporation (December 13, 1904), the C. G. Conn Company, as it was now called, became the first industry of its kind to open its doors exclusively to the use of union labor. A new union was established: Local No. 335 of the Metal Polishers, Buffers, Platers, Brass Moulders, Brass and Silver Workers International Union of North America. Instruments manufactured between 1906 and 1916 bear a union label.' "

Although this horn has pearls, and presumably an automatic octave key, it does not have a Haynes patent stamp on the back, nor does it have rolled tone holes. This therefore makes it a Wonder horn, and not a New Wonder Series saxophone.
