Probably an accurate enough descriptor. It looks to be an older one. Seems to be a model 37 but outfitted with two keyguards instead of one. As you probably know, Vito/Noblet/Beaugnier tended to mix and match details, thus horns will appear with different details on them (keyguards, neck brace, bell brace, etc) obfuscating the reality that they are the same models. I'd say this one was French parts assembled in USA.

This is a nicer one, with the nicer pinky table before the tables became clunkier later on in USA production. Nevertheless, very little market value even in play shape. $350 maybe in play shape. $150-175 in project shape.

Hope this helps...
