I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this sax was stencilled for Sears Roebuck in 1952, just like these Hammerschmidts were.

Compare this very simple Silvertone to The Tone King horns of similar vintage, and you will immediately notice the differences. During this time frame Keilwerth put acrylic angel wings on all their horns.

This very plain horn, with its left sided bell keys and wire cage key guards, is a throwback to an earlier time in Keilwerth's development. Most likely, it was a horn that could be had for cheaper.
