Cannot find a advert match, but I'm inclined to say His Excellency.

1954 could still be an Academy Award ZZ model. We may not have an ad but we do know they were still produced for the length of the contract that would date expired at the end of 1954. Let's rememeber that they only had to tone down the advertising, not the model releases.

I'm inclined to say that's the model #, but not a name. In that come node there's a price list from 1950 with the model #'s and corresponding ID name. There must be a ID somewhere???
