    Has come to hand this sax, which has been cornered in a closet for 30 years.
    I think it'sa Couturier, but that model can not be, because there is nowhere in the serial number.
    Appears to be a C melody by size, but sounds like a Tenor.
    As you can see from the photos that have been housed in
    Ta Couturier is recorded and the name appears below a round stamp that says "PATENT SYSTEM OF GEORGE SGDG. "
    can be made in France?
    For SGDG acronym seems to mean "Sans garantie du Gouvernement"
    Typing system has a strange, because it only has 3 buttons at the top of the left hand, not Bb.

    Thank you very much and sorry for my English but my native language is Spanish and I am translating with google.
