HELP, I Want One!

Vintage Focused Compact and Round Tone!
This is a 1970s vintage Selmer Paris long-shank C* hard rubber mouthpiece for alto saxophone, tip opening 0.061 inch/1.54 mm. This mouthpiece came standard with the Mark VI and VII until the S80 C* came out with the Super Action 80 Series 1 in 1980. They feature a horseshoe shape to the throat, flat sidewalls, and a flat baffle to help produce a compact focused tone with a solid core. These pieces have a nice sound to them that's a bit more complex and rounded than a modern day S80. 
 
This one is playing nicely and has maintained its rails, rail tip, and table fantastically over the years with only one indentation on the rail tip which isn't affecting the playability. Physically, this piece has oxidation towards the scroll shank and the beak is featuring surface scratches. The only paint remaining is in the C* stamp on the body.
 
This piece ships as is in the photos, no ligature or mouthpiece cap will be included.
