This is a rather rare mouthpiece that was made by MC Gregory as a Gale Companion. Marked 3s, it has a. My belief is that this was finished and faced by MC Gregory as his work characteristically has very thin side and tip rails. This is from the Theo Wanne Mouthpiece Museum website; The Companion is a later model of the Hollywood. It has a bit more roll over at the baffle and a little more edge to the sound.

Gregory company before it was bought out by Charles Bay in 1969. As to be expected, these are great mouthpieces.

They were most likely made on the same molds as the the Hollywood models. The item "Vintage Gale Companion Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece 3s (made by MC Gregory)" is in sale since Monday, April 16, 2018.
