Starting with the New Wonder series, horns were identified with a number and a letter. In the case of the saxophones, the letter is "M" and there are a lot of numbers:

20M Straight Eb Sopranino (Conn called it an "Eb Soprano")
2M C Soprano
4M Bb Soprano, Curved
18M Bb Soprano, Straight
22M Conn-O-Sax
24M F Mezzo Soprano
6M Eb Alto
8M C Melody Tenor
10M Bb Tenor
12M Eb Baritone
14M Bb Bass
(16V Eb Contrabass Sarrusophone -- Conn's Eb contrabass sax replacement)

An even number was for a LOW pitch (modern intonation; A=440hz) horn. Odd numbers were for HIGH pitch (obsolete intonation standard; A=457hz). "H" or "L" is stamped by the serial number. High pitch saxophones cannot be made to play in tune with modern instruments.

Finishes were referred to by number. Especially note that the 0 was for standard gold-plated finish, the 00 was for the ARTIST'S SPECIAL gold-plated finish with "special" engraving (from about 30 different choices), and the 000 was for the VIRTUOSO DELUXE gold-plated finish with additional pearl key touches and custom, one-of-a-kind, engraving.

The patent number 1119954 and date (Dec. 8, 1914) are for the William S. Haynes patent for drawn toneholes. It's not when your horn was made.
