How much should I sell my used antique Martin alto saxaphone?

by Victoria

It has a little bit of wear and tear. I have it in the repair shop right now and am thinking of selling it because I want a new one. The tone holes are sautered on. It even has an extra key for playing G#. It plays well for beginners. I am an advanced player now and I want a better sax. I'm looking to get the highest price for it because the saxaphone that I want is a $24,000 sax but over the holidays it is only $17,000. So how much should I sell it for?

early 1900s Martin C - silver alto sax
by: Jim

Dear Saxophone experts, just a quick question almost idental to the precious one. Im holding a antique C alto sax from Frank Martin. Looking for a buyer but need to know the approximate value before I do anything. The body of the alto is in very good shape with a dull silver finish.
Im guessing the value is in the $600 range. The springs are in good working order but all pads need replacing. I can forward photos to you if necessary. Thanks for any help. Jim in NY
