A 37 had the C# on the same side as B and Bb....all on left side.

It's not a Special because it has the standard pinky table.

As you say, not a 35. Neither is it a 39.

This actually more resembles a Noblet than a Vito-branded horn, truthfully....

Is not a 38, because a 38 has RH bellkeys, and a 38 has the modern-style right-hinged pinky table:

It may well be 'none of the above'. Oftentimes horns came out of the Beaugnier factory with mix-and-match details, this has been discussed a bit in past threads....Could also be it was built as a Noblet ...then for whatever reason they needed to stamp one "Vito"....

The Beaugnier Noblet Brand had a number of Alto Saxophones that had the B and Bb on the bell's left side but the C# on the right/back side of the bell there are a number of Noblet that say both Noble and Vito on them.

If it is #21586 I have the following note on it... "Vito on the bell with a beautiful engraving" - owners statement

And a question.... does it have a switch attached to the G# left hand pinkie key?
