As Jeff Baker stated, he did play an Alex F. Don't know if there were seven valves but there is a formal photo of Mr Jacobs with this horn in Arnold Jacobs: Song and Wind.
Georg Hamburg who Mr Jacobs succeeded played both CC and F Alexes. Mr Jacobs bought these horns from him. Don't know if this was the F he used. Maybe he used the CC at one time, he did use other horns besides the Yorks including a Holton BB flat!
