In another of what seems to be Ben's 20 questions to Klarinet: =20

I have come across a stash of old mouthpieces that a friend has offered =
to sell. Most are no-names and many are in bad shape, but not all.

Has anybody ever heard of a H. Paradis mouthpiece. When I bought it, I =
saw the ___ais and thought Lelandais. Unfortunately, after cleaning it, =
I discovered that it isn't.=20

I have a chance to pick up some old Woodwind Steel Ebonite (very green =
in color), old Selmers (D, HS*...), and old Buffet. I seem to remember =
that the really old Buffet mouthpieces were a Chedeville Blank. Is this =
true. If I am looking at old mouthpieces, how can I tell if it is worth =
the money. The ones that were broken obviously aren't worth it. I =
can't play them because they are covered with what looks like years of =
nasty looking crud.

Thank you everybody for all of your help.
