martin tenor sax holton alto

martin tenor sax, holton alto


My grandfather gave me a martin tenor sax and an alto frank holton sax,  fourty years ago to play in school. I enjoyed playing the tenor sax for many years. I just pulled them out of the attic and am looking for some information on them.
The martin is a low pitch serial number 71962 with metal mouthpiece.

The alto is a frank holton serial number 91114 also metal mouth piece, in silver.   I
loved playing the horns as a kid but am now in my 50's  I think they may be worth something.  I also have the originally cases I think
Thanks in advance for any  help you can give.
