    I have no idea what H.V Jacobson would be, but it may be an after market addition to the normal engraving.


    From around 1921.

    Conn C Melody. Rolled Tones Holes

    Tunable straight neck....

    Front high F key


    If it does not have this, it is a less in demand stencil


    I pick these up for under 200 bucks usually.

    The older versions, which this is, are not in much demand.

    After a 500 to 700 dollar refurbishing, depends on what is moving and what is fused in place, you would get 450 to 775 for it.

    Pictures would tell if it was silver plated, gold plated, raw brass, nickel chrome, or a highly engraved virtuoso model.

    So, if you need more specific info send some pictures.

    Good Luck
