I agree that this looks too small for a 2X bell. Of course, I'll know when I get the horn. I am lookng forward to checking the serial number as well, since I own a 1918 conn C melody sax as well.
I have converted a 2x front to an upright before, but it was a bell in bad shape, and I didn't ruin it by the conversion. I will not be converting this bell, as I want to have both bells eventually.
Thanks for the information.
