Front Of Bell
Description: Eb Alto
Manufacturer: Hammerschmidt
Stencil Name: Silvertone
Serial #: 0602
Finish: Lacquer with nickel plated keys
Source: eBay.com

According to the seller this Silvertone is stamped pat applied for. The Klingsors, and the Hüttl stencil I have are not stamped this way. This led the seller to speculate that Hammerschmidt was likely preparing for a larger scale release in the US market in the late 50's.

Silvertone was the stencil name that was sold by Sears Roebuck during the first half of the 20th century. Usually the Silvertone saxophones were made by American horn makers like Buescher. This is only the 2nd Hammerschmidt that I have seen.
