Need help identifying the make/model/year

Any ideas? I think it might be a Silvio Marotta from the 60s, based on another I found on line in a similar color (different grill, less treble stops) customized "Marie" in that same typeface, but I don't know if that is an after-market customization or not.

No manufacturer stamp on the accordion or inside either of the panels or on the case.

My first accordion, got it for a great price and I love it, but am curious about its history.

Best,
Alex

Reminds me a bit of a lady-size Contello I had, likely an American import brand for an Italian-made accordion. Different grille and couplers, though, so likely a different "brand". Yours is a 4-reed, however. If its sound is comparable, it would have a sweet M register and strong Master. Bass somewhat on the noisy side.

Sold mine only because I switched to CBA: would have been a keeper otherwise.
