HELP, I Want One!

This is a vintage Strathon (made by Zinner) mouthpiece for the alto sax. The Strathon is famous as one of the first pieces to feature an adjustable baffle. It can be slid down towards the front of the tip, creating a more brilliant sound, or pulled back towards the chamber for a warmer tone. This example is stamped a 7 but measures quite a bit larger than that, closer to .105”. It does appear to have been opened at some point in its life, but the work was done very well. The mouthpiece shows better-than-average physical wear, mostly just some light surface scratches. It does have its original ligature.
