Please help identifying the maker of this old Selmer American Tenor

My grandma bought this tenor for me for my high school graduation present. I have had it since 2003 and it belonged to a session player in NYC until his death and he bought it new which makes me the 2nd owner. I have only seen a couple of these online over the last 10 years and haven't been able to find any info on them. The only info that seems to be out there is the New York stamped Selmer Americans but not the Elkhart models. I do realize that it is a stencil and did not come out of a Selmer owned factory. Does anyone have any info on these horns or regcognize what factory this would have come out of?

More pics can be found in my album on photobucket: American/?start=all

To date it from the serial number I assume I would go with Conn's charts then? Would this horn be of the same quality as the model that Conn sold under their own name at the time?
I saw that today but I wasn't sure if it was the same because of the name.
