 F.Loree English Horn - Vintage

Hi all-

Wondering if someone can provide guidance on the age of a "vintage" F.Loree english horn. The serial number is either CC73 or GG73. Looking at the Lars Kirmser reference table, I assume (!) that the horn dates between 1910 (AA) and 1929 (AB) but I'm wondering if anyone can narrow it down any more?

The key work is conservatory. Open holes under LH "A" key and RH "D" key. It has a forked "F" resonance key but no left '"F". (picture attached)

This instrument is owned by the local youth orchestra. It actually plays fairly well and it certainly is light weight without all the modern day key work! :o) It has a massive crack in the top joint through both octave holes, but was pinned and putty-ed together successfully (many years ago).

Thanks!!
