Identifying a Hawkes & Son Tenor

Hey, everyone! I recently inherited a couple very old looking Saxophones and I'm wondering if someone could help me identify one of them...
All the side says is Hawkes & Son Maker London & Paris

There is also a number hand etched in above the imprint
107-832-776

The tenor in the picture I attached. The only thing I could find online that looks similar is from an auction, but the one in the auction had a serial number under the stamped text and the number was stamped as well. The only number on mine is above the text and etched in.

Here is a link to the auction page
https://www.reemandansie.com/auction/lot/2253-early-20th-century-silvered-hawkes-and-son-tenor-saxophone-model-1234-a-in-fitted-case/?lot=122936&sd=1

If anyone has any information please let me know! I would love to restore this Sax to its origional beauty to honor the person who passed. Thanks!
