 RE: Clarinet & Alto Sax Mouthpieces

The Buffet mouthpiece I have does have the three rings and dates from the the late '30s or early '40s. When I showed it to Mark Sorlie he thought it was a relatively new mouthpiece because I have always taken great care of my clarinet and saxophone. I have often wondered what the three rings were for. I always placed my ligature on the top line and did not use the three lines at the bottom of the mouthpiece. Daniel, do you know anyone who can reface and make the inner dimension adjustments you refer to? The thing that puzzles me so much is the facing lenth of approx. 32mm. As far as I can determine, facing lengths on present day clarinet mouthpieces are from around five to ten mm less.
