Here are a few things to bear in mind: When advertising an instrument for sale, you will often see the serial number referred to as 36xxxx.
I am currently selling a nice "N" Conn Director Tenor for 5 shipped domestically. They can be FAR better than most new horns which sell for 2x/3x the cost. MANY times you see them when they have not been treated so well, so they have a fair amount of work needed to be done on them.The (I) and (II), or "Series I" and "Series II" is a much more recent addition to indicate significant changes. New Wonder (II) models are often referred to as "Chu" or "Chu Berry" models, after the famous tenor saxophone player, Leon "Chu" Berry.The "Chu" or "Chu Berry" name is entirely unofficial; Conn never called these saxophones by that name. Berry didn't play a New Wonder (II) model tenor saxophone, but a later "Standard" (or "transitional") model. Conn didn't have a model called the "Transitional".kind of like a consolation prize since it didn't have the microtuner.Also, I see that almost every lick of lacquer is gone.
