In this mouthpiece box, was a Vincent Bach Corp. 5A mouthpiece.  While it can not be confirmed as the same from 1924, the markings would indicate it was from the same time period.

    I have an early New York trumpet mouthpiece, size 6, with a small capital M stamped on the throat portion, just under the cup. What does the M indicate? Thanks! – Don

      I’ve not seen that marking before. More than likely an indication of the back bore configuration.
