This a MK VI tenor from 1963 in excellent structural condition with some normal lacquer wear. It is not the prettiest but it certainly original finish. It has had only very minor resolder and some very minor dings/dents. It’s been sitting a long time and was in need of an overhaul. The last 105xxx original I overhauled turned out to the one of the best horns I have every played and it went to a top tier NYC pro player.
This horn is (SOLD) to a long time customer who commissioned to have me do the restoration/overhaul and set it up. I have posted many pics and vids on the process as this horn was really a labor of love. It came out amazing as I knew it would based on the way it played even on the old dead pads. The before and after playlist can be seen here:

Brasswork done, body straight,
Body, keys and neck bathed, toneholes leveled and polished:
