Orpheum De Luxe?

Wonder if anyone knows about this tenor sax. It calls itself an Orpheum De Luxe, and has "Made in Italy" stamped on it, with serial # 6056. It badly needs an overhall, but I don't know if it's worth it. I came by it for next to nothing. Any ideas?

    I have a SN# 69xx that appears to be either a R&C or a Malerne Stencil. Does yours have the <|> body/Bell brace or is it the J type. Also check for your Pinky Table. Is the High portion of the G# key closer to the Strap or the Bell side (like a Conn).

      Mine is the <|> brace with the G# wider at the strap side of the table but I still have not been able to figure out which company made it yet? The R&C posting with pictures, no longer exist to compare with mine.
