It's unclear if this was the original finish on this horn, or if the horn was refinished at some point. I wonder if the keywork wasn't perhaps refinished. Two tone silver with gold keys was not a known finish option for the Hohner Presidents. However, it is possible that the Hohner did offer custom finishes for customers. Or because this horn was a late model production horn, that they may have changed their finish options towards the end of the President's production run.

This sax was made towards the end of the President's production run and is circa late '67. By this time straight tone holes were being used, since the last year for rolled tone holes was in '62.

This horn has a high F# key.
