Reviving this thread because I love this guitar…
Vincente Tatay, purchased by my grandfather in March 1953. I used to have the receipt too, but i threw it away, so i'm afraid i cant tell you purchase price or model #. I do know that it was not the "top of the line" but was second on the price list, at least from Tatay guitars offered by the Spanish Music Centre at that time.
I could not find any stamps or numbers engraved anywhere, inside or out, and the label is not signed.
It is a beautiful-sounding guitar, but it is a bit small: (49mm at the nut, 640 length) and just a little too delicate and quiet. I have used it for a few performances; sounded good when i played romantic period duets (e.g. Carulli op 34). Unfortunately, there are slight intonation problems in higher positions.
