My ? Classic Saxaphone

Hello fellow saxers, 
I haven't played my Eflat Alto for 40+ yrs.  No good reasons , still always listened to and prefered great Horn music.  My 9 yr old grandson recently decided he might like to play the sax , so I got mine out. I even had a #2 reed in new condition , and had a reunion which my grandson really loved. I surprised myself.
 
There lies my main question.  

I have a ' Whitehall ' , with the Bell stencilled Whitehall in script and Made in USA  both inside an ornate decoration.  There is no '  Japan ' stamped by lower thumbhold , just a numbers only ser #. I inherited the hand me down horn from my older brother in the 1950's.


Can anyone help me date this?
Thx , Jon

    The only Whitefall I find is a Yani stencil, but I think you are aware of that.

    Pictures would help here.

      Can't really tell from these pics, though it does seem to have some Martin-ish features.  If you can post some showing the left hand cluster, palm keys, and tonehole chimneys maybe we could tell you more.
