Warm, Vintage Tone all the way - from the vintage era of the late 1930s and made in New York, a metal mouthpiece that is not loud and bright. These have a huge chamber, low baffle and a very reserved, warm tone. Serial number: 3P 77. These were originally made with facings of #2 through 5*, and custom options. This was a Number #4*, or Medium-Large.
It arrived with an original tip at 0.070", and I think it can reface to 0.085 pretty easy or maybe even 0.090"(modern 6). There is a chance it could go further and I can link Bob Carpenter into that by request.
