That Concord Artist Series tenor that you have was specially designed for the New York City Board of Education, for the Concord Artist Series conducted by Leopold Stokowski (who was then the conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra), and it ran from about 1959 to 1963. It was a high-end instrument at the time, and there are silver-plated tenors and altos as well. I heard that the manager of Schenkelaars was trained at the Keilwerth factory.
