    No, but the headstock shape suggests that its a Kay.

    Silvertone was a Sears brand name. The mandolin was built by Kay of Chicago. Sears didn't manufacture anything. The one you linked to was made by Kay for Sears as well. These were sold under many brand names and many were sold with no brand name at all. That headstock shape is unique to Kay manufactured instruments.
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.
