I'm respecting the owner's privacy, but thought you folks might like to see this.

It's not that dissimilar to a HbII-style (early Conn Hb-style) mouthpiece, though a bit scaled-down in size.

I'm doing a careful restoration...no heavy buffing...and leaving the tooling lines (that were not sanded/buffed out during fabrication) in it.

My understanding is that these are rare as dodo birds, and go for a mint...

Now that you have an example, will you be knocking it off, copying it, or “improving” it??
