vintage plastic mouthpiece in good condition all-round. The original tip is at 0.080". According to Theo Wanne, these were designed by Beechler. These have an aluminum metal band on the shank - and that's a great trait! It does gain some kind of tarnish that is not responding to my silver tarnish remover. Horizontal machining on the table is original.
Serial numbers are in the 100s to over 7000. With this one being at 1864, it's pretty safe to say this was made in the 1950s or early 60s.
These are known to carry the great vibration within/from the thinner beak that Gregory is known for.
