Stencil Name: Sonora

This horn is really only interesting because of its very early serial #, and its unusual finish. I am assuming it is gold plate, since there appears to be silver plate showing were the gold is worn away. Gold plate is applied over silver plate, while a worn lacquer finish would show brass underneath.

The extra engraving on the bell is also something not seen on the later Sonora saxophones.
