What Model Is This? (Soprano Sax)

Hi Saxophone.org readers,

I've been trying to find out what type of Soprano saxophone this is yet I'm having no luck!
As most of the music shops are shut at the moment (pandemic life eh), I thought maybe one of you lovely people would be able to help me out?

What I know so far is:
- Silver Elkhart deluxe body (4048504).
- Gold keys with white/pearl lacquer.
- Selmer ligature.
- Unbranded mouthpiece.

I've tried quite a bit of Googling but can't seem to find this exact model. I'm wondering if it's a mixture of different models? It seems to be quite old, however is in great condition! Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Al

    Nothing about that horn looks old what so ever.

    I would assume it is an asian made instrument if there is no name on it.

    Good Luck

      Many thanks for your response!

      There is engraving on the silver body that reads: 'Elkhart Deluxe' with a serial (4048504) and some floral pattern, however I'm still unable to find any results with this information! :(
      The search continues!..

      Kind Regards,
      Al
