It is a 1st generation'slant sig', made in New York. There is no "USA" on the shank. The facing number 3 is stamped on the table.
It is all original, never refaced or otherwise altered. This piece is in excellent condition. The tip, table, and rails are nice and smooth.There are no tooth indentations on the beak. There is some ligature scratching/scuffing on the exterior on top, but that is about it. This is a great mouthpiece for the serious jazz alto saxophonist!
It speaks easily and has a tone that is on the dark side of the spectrum, but very rich harmonically.
