No, that’s not a guaranteed differentiator. My 1941 silver plated BA tenor has a factory original adjustment screw set on the low F cup. They were experimenting all the time, perhaps none more so than when production was reduced to low hundreds per year during the occupation.
Interesting to see all the variations. I recently picked up a 1945 silver-plated BA alto, and it doesn’t have the F cup adjustment screw (nor any of the other SA features).

Hey J L, welcome to the forum. Please note we have the same initials which will likely confuse everyone on here. I sent you a private message, called a "conversation" here. You can respond there if you want.

Thanks!
Thanks for pointing out.. Fixed:)

Sure thing. I like your new username! Much better than boring initials. It's too late for me to change mine after all the years on here.

Congrats on that nice horn. I know how you feel; I've owned my mid-'60s MKVI tenor for nearly 40 years and I'll never part with it.
