Hi i have an old holton saxophone with a serial number of 19599 which from every list i can find makes it to old to be a collegiate. Yet it has it right on the bell. Can someone please help me date this saxophone?

I have no clue what this is. Scrambled eggs. What do you make of the upper stack? very odd keywork. Common neck.
The pinky G half moon says 200 series. Same with the RH spatulas. LH Bell keys with straight arms. The wire guard is not a 200 series? Wouldn't be the first Holton I have seen as a mixed bag of parts. Still they play well.
@Psyphr some pictures of left side & pinky table could help.
Sorry thought i sent all the pics

I'm glad to be able to confirm the it was being made at the time thats great. I've been trying to research myself but this has to be the earliest collegiate I can find. But it feels wrong because this was the revelation period for holton still wasn't it? Is it a left over horn that got the collegiate engraving is what I'm starting to question. It doesn't help but i did get the saxophone and a collegiate trombone at the same time and they were in a basement in elkhorn Wisconsin.
