I've had a Scumback M75-PVC (very low power-handling, at a delicate 20 W or less) in my M12 combo forever, and it's so perfect with that amp that nothing can beat it. I A/B'd it against the G12 Blue and even liked this good ol' Scumback pre-rola GB clone even more. For cheaper bucks, I'd suggest the basic/Chinese-made Celestion Greenback or the WGS Green Beret.
Own or have owned: M12, Carmen Ghia, Rx JS, MAZ 18 Jr NR, Monza, Z-28, Route 66, Therapy, DB4, Remedy, Prescription, EZG-50, SRZ-65 LE, & Delta 88 Z-Drive | Brake Lite SA & Air Brake
Im using one in a 1/12 Mesa Boogie cab with a Marshall 2061X. It sounds excellent its real vintage sounding real warm and articulate. I had a few Golds as well. The Alnico cream is more like the blue then the Gold. I almost went with a Creamback but decided to give the alncio cream a shot. No regrets at all. It is a awesome speaker. It sounds great clean and overdriven also takes pedals very well. Even fuzz pedals .
Although I've not tried the Alnico Cream, after experimenting with lots of speakers in my M12 combo, including the Blue and Gold, I settled on the G12 Neo Creamback. I couldn't be happier, but sorry that I don't know how it would compare to the Alnico.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
