    I've got an alto of just this vintage, no front F there either, and I get 3 octaves and a fourth. But that's objectively not good enough...

    While it may be a bit clumsy, it's easy enough to replicate the front F fingering without the front F. The lack of the key shouldn't have an effect on how high one can play into the altissimo range.

    You play A2 and add the palm F key. Same as the front F.

    I've used this on soprano, and it works... But it can be a bit awkward depending on the ergos of the horn. Specifically how far away from the palm does the palm key lie.
