Saxophone/Concertone sax

The patent for Sept 1915 is the "Hardy" drawn tone hole patent. The other patent in 1914 refers to the "Haynes" drawn tone hole patent. The Hardy patent was assigned to C G.Conn Ltd and was used mostly by their Pan American subsidiary. Without pictures, it's hard to confirm, but I would suspect this particular Concertone is based on a Pan Ameican model. Hope this helps.
