Can you tell me what kind of neck this is?

This neck came with a King Super 20 alto (as a second neck), but I am pretty sure it is not right for this horn.

The neck tenon fits fine, but the bottom part of the octave mechanism is about 1/2 inch higher up than it ought to be.
In other words, it does not even touch the little arm coming up from the body.

Other than a circle on the top of the octave ?pip, there are no markings.

My guess is that the previous owner was trying to find a replacement silver neck and got this not realizing that it would not even work with this horn.

Based on shininess, guessing nickel plated.

A tech thought it might be a Yanagisawa neck.

Your input is much appreciated!
