All the key work is well oiled opening and closing as it should. The saxophone can mostly play right now however the horn is sitting on its factory pads, and could benefit from a setup at the bare minimum.
It will be up to the new owner to choose between getting a setup on the factory pads, or investing into a full overhaul.
This saxophone is a very nice piece but still has its fair share of patina, various scratches, knicks, dings, fleabites, metal wear of red/green colors, and other anomalies associated with such an old antique instrument.
The neck on this saxophone is a touch out of round on the sides or pulled down. While its possible to just leave as is, its an easy enough fix that its recommended to have your tech work on this during the setup, or overhaul process.
In the grand scheme of things when you consider the condition that most of these pop up and sell in, although not mint this saxophone is a rather nice situation. There is fantastic lacquer luster and sheen left on the keys and body.
