 Re: Mouthpiece and reed identification

Don't know the dates but they are collectors' items. Alelandais with the cursive script at the bottom usually sell for $350 or more if in good shape (no extreme refacing or alteration to bore, baffle, or tone chamber, dingless side and tip rails, no mold or heavy calcification, no significant warping). The mouthpiece certainly predates the 1960s and probably the 1950s as well. More than 70 years old, I would guess.

How does the mouthpiece play? Some of the old Alelandais are ringers and keepers, especially if you have them refurbished by a tech like Brad Behn.
