Trying to identify what model guitar I have

I have a Gibson nylon string S/N  54365 the S/N tag inside the body says it's C-O Classical but it has two white pickguards which would indicate that its really a F-25 Folksinger. Looking up the serial number online says it was manufactured in 1962 but I can't find any information for a 1962 Nylon Stringed F-25. All the F-25 folksinger guitars I can find are metal stringed. I'm confused as to just what I have.

To the OP, golpedores are sometimes added to the tops of Spanish-style  guitars  both to protect tops and serve as amplifiers for Flamenco players who use a lot of percussive blows ("golpes", in Spanish) on the body of their guitars while playing.

So essentially, this is a CO set up for Flamenco-style playing
