The case very worn and has been repaired with tape. The end plug is very interesting. It is a Remlé Adjusto plug.
It opens up and has a little compartment inside. Take a look at the attached picture called. Remlé Presents and look a the second image. The horn has an art deco style adjustable teardrop thumb rest. The pads, are old, but they are closing.
Bill replaced two pads and dealt with some minor leaks. He also put sealant on all the pads to bring the leather back to life. The saxophone has a very cool sound. It is in playable condition.
At some point it would benefit from an overhaul. This is a piece of American History, big bands era.
