These were all made by either Conn or Buescher. Lots of C Melodies. Selmer Paris was not a big force in the US prior to the 30s and Selmer needed a horn to sell here. The Conn made ones were similar to a Pan-American (often having a P in front of the serial number) and the low C cage would be like the Mercedes star and usually there would be a letter (A,C,T) above the serial number and an L below. OK horns equal to the US Bueschers and Conns but not a Selmer Paris.
