Need help identifying Vintage Conn

My Conn was relaquered and I can't clearly see the 2nd digit of the serial numbers.

The serial number looks like M2X0105. The second digit could be a 0, 5, 6, 8, or 9.

Can't figure out if its a Chu Berry, a Tranny, or a 10m. 

I attached pictures. Could someone please take a look.

      Thanks. That means the second digit is most likely a 5.

        The bell keys alternating sides and the 10M engraving makes it a transitional. Older key work with newer engraving.

        Chu Berry played that vintage.
