I've got a hard rubber berg larsen for tenor, 110/2/M. This mouthpiece has the "M" writen off to the side.
Does it mean it is 60's ?

I think the offset letters stopped in the early 70's, so it could be early 70's back. SMS is supposed to be the shorter facing, (French curve), and M is supposed to be the longer one, (American curve), however, Bergs aren't consistant with their measurements. At all.
