If it's not a Kohlert 57, then what is it?

I found this on an online auction site, and can't figure out what it is. I'm hoping some of the experts here can tell me.
It seems to have all the characteristics of a 57 (as I understand them), and the serial number seems to indicate 1957, but it doesn't say 57 on the bell, which looks like it has the 1960s Kohlert engraving. It's obviously not one of the B&H stencils. Did Kohlert make any other models in 1957? If so, does anybody know what this one is called? I read through a lot of the threads here, and checked saxpics, but couldn't find an answer.

Did you buy it???
If it played like a 57 it was cheap even with slightly funky-looking neck.
I had a tenor from 1957 which was engraved for a music store in Germany so, yes they did stencil. They started making the Regent, Edgeware and Bixley for Boosey and Hawkes around the same time. They had the 58 bell key stack though like the one I had...(just now sold to another forum member). Great horn.

Edit; your post just appeared so I see you did buy it...let us know how it works out!
