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"....
I think the chart is accurate but the serial number is out of sync on your horn. It's that of an earlier model. By 215xx we have the curved bell brace, modern Bb spat keys and not marked Special. Just like this 22xxx
another clue gold springs /white thumb rest /green case i would say earlier too because of left hand bells but the earlier ones did not have adjustable felts and low c look different then earlier ..none the less its a player the neck is bent I'm thinking of just getting a new beaugnier because there soo cheap impressed I've had p mauriat/yas 61/yas custom z /martin comm these horn are solid built like mauriat with the vintage sound yamaha ease i recommend getting beagnier very underrated still
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?
