Regarding this Holton C-melody: What year was this made?

When did Holton start the floral bell engraving, and abandon this sparse name-only and the 5 little lines above? When did they add the master keys?
Second: I can't blame the seller for the terrible fotos. They don't know any better, but I can't tell if it has the hi F spatula due to a lack of side shots and close ups.
Third: Recently there was talk of a Couturier-Holton connection. This one seems to have beveled tone holes like a Martin. Is it a real Couturier or a stencil of something else? http://cgi.ebay.com/1930s-40s-Silver...mZ230326232749
