This vintage model 88 by Runyon mouthpiece for bari sax is made of black plastic, is stamped as a 3, and measures .080"/2.03mm. The body has some light scuffing and the paint on the logos has worn off, but the table, tip, and rails are in perfect condition. 
 
Internally, the mouthpiece features a medium-low wedge baffle with straight sidewalls leading into a horseshoe chamber. Though this has a small tip opening, when paired with a medium-firm to firm reed, the mouthpiece is capable of a surprising amount of power. It has a mostly warm tone that tends bright with a bit of edge. Articulation is easy as is playing the entire range of the instrument. For a player used to a close-tip classical or concert mouthpiece looking for their first jazz/big band piece, this mouthpiece would fit that bill excellently.
 
No mouthpiece cap or ligature are included.
