Just curious, what is this old(?) Selmer mouthpiece? Is it just a generic mouthpiece, or something else? It was included with my Full Boehm Selmer clarinet (old logo) when I got it.

It's a Selmer mouthpiece and the only markings I've found are the newer Selmer logo on the bottom of the top of the mouthpiece. There is nothing on the table or anywhere else.

That's a nice mouthpiece. It was made from good old rubber which sounded rich and deep, AND possessed that great tonal ring, brilliance, effervescence which made them special. If the mouthpiece plays in tune then you've got something with very good potential. Issues were that many of the Selmer mouthpieces made during that time were made with bores which were too big causing intonation issues. You can caliper the bore's exit to get an idea. If it is less than .592' that'd be ideal.
