Supertone C Melody Saxophone

We just acquired a Supertone C Melody Saxophone that is in great shape with a serial number of 56544. Has anyone ever heard of this name or know who makes it? The holes are bevelled like our Martin of the same vintage but there is nothing to indicate that it is a Martin. I would appreciate any information I can get on this sax. Thank you.

        Not really anywhere, you can only date it compared to the martin models of that era eg if it has top front F it would be produced after around 1926. Conn , martin and buescher were prolific stencil producers in the 20's so there is no records Dave
