I doubt the mouthpiece is from the 60s, as the SMS is not offset. Likely the box is older than the mouthpiece, possibly the lig with paddle screws as well. Irrespectively, if the mouthpiece was hand finished at the factory, you probably have a great piece. Take a look here:

Others on this site will know way more.

Didn't Berg come out with a modern "Vintage" model that recreated some of the vintage characteristics, like Link has with their Vintage models. Maybe this is one of those? I don't know if they came in a modern box or a modern recreation of a vintage box.

It's been my experience that most of the 60's - 70's "2" chambers were drop baffles, not bullet chambers.

This is not modern "Vintage", definitely.
