"New" Holton T401 = "intermediate"?

I have a question for a Holton expert, if there is someone there who can answer.  I have a "new" Holton T401.  Information online suggests that the earlier "original" Holton Galaxy trumpet was a professional-grade horn, but after Leblanc took over and changed the name to T401 the horn was degraded to a "step-up" or "intermediate" horn.  Information online can sometimes be misleading, so my question is whether the T401 was truly any less of a horn (or different in any meaningful way) than the pre-Leblanc Galaxy.  Thanks to anyone who can answer this question!!!

The best bet for discussion on your Holton T401 would be the Trumpet Master or Trumpet Herald websites. Just typing in your model would bring up anything written on it. You would have to find old catalogs from the 1960s when Galaxy models were sold to see what they consider it. The Holton Loyalist site doesn't even list the model.
