It looks like Her Excellency "N", the 4B? movement is a new one...Unknown until better info/photos are provided.

I think the "4B" mentioned in the notes is referring to the 48 date code on the movement.

Her Excellency "N" from me.  We just published another Her Excellency "N" on site here. Seems this one would get the same name?
Could the I in the case serial number is a 1?
Movement is USA.   Fifth Ave cases usually don't have letters for case SN first digit? Unless this isn't true for a case made around the same time as the movement (1948).
The good photos really help.  Thanks pato242
Here's a snippet from a 1947 newspaper ad for Her Excellency "N".  Click for full ad.

The "HER EXCELLENCY" 'N' has a Pink Case and Pink Dial face (with Black numearals and Hands?)

based on what We know "also available in Yellow" would indicate the Yellow Case with White Dial and Gilt numerals version (as on the subject) is a variant other than the 'N'.

Left:  "HER EXCELLENCY" 'N'
