Does anyone recognize this Roller-Key-Cluster?

The horn was built in Elkhart, but it doesn't look like any Buescher I've ever seen, and I can't find any pictures of original Martin sopranos.

Another possibility would be that it's a [rather rare] original Elkhart Band instrument, from the period 1923-1926, before the merger with Buescher in 1927.

What do you make of that crazy-weird forked thingamabob on the G# key?

Could that have been an aftermarket add-on?

I've never seen anything quite like that.

are you sure that this is not a perspective "trick or the eye”?
