Funny King stencil

AS was either their second or third line, and was replaced by the tempo.
Absolutely no idea how it plays, just seen some cornets and saxes marked that. instruments.htm#American

I'd assume the low serial number would put the horn around 1925/6, however I really have no idea how the horn would perform. 1925/26 is still the era of the original King model and that'd be a split bell key horn -- but this AS has left bell keys. You don't see that on other pro HN White saxophones. So, interesting horn!
