This is a nice 50s vintage Selmer Paris “short shank” Soloist tenor sax mouthpiece. Originally tabled stamped a C, this piece was later refaced and opened to a 7* (.105”) by Sebastian Knox. Physically, the mouthpiece shows light oxidation of the hard rubber around its body, as seen in the photos, but very little physical wear. There's a couple ligature scratches but no cracks or major wear of note. The work on the tip and rails looks great, as you'd expect of Knox's work. He also did some work on the inside, opening up the traditional horseshoe chamber to a more oval shape. Overall, the work has left this piece playing darker than you'd expect, but it still matches up well with a medium to medium-hard reed.
