Looks like a C to me too. Also there were tons of Buescher C melodies made and many on ebay whereas the tenors are pretty uncommon. Look at saxpics at some TTs and see how they look. One difference as I recall is the fork F$ is mounted differently.
Well, it doesn't have the spoon alternate F#. Has the one with the mechanism wrapped around the thumb rest area of the horn. Some later C melody Bueschers over 200K serial number range may have the spoon alternate key, but the early ones all had that side thing going. So I'm gonna say C melody.
