I have an old Conn Eagle alto mouthpiece. It has a real old sound(dark) with not much volume.I has no baffle to speak of, and scooped out chamber. The tip rail is very thin, siderails a bit thicker, and the table has evidence of hand finishing (sanding lines).

I have an old B flat Tenor and a C-melody Tenor Conn Eagle, and both play about the same as Honeyboy's description.

I'm not very keen on them, save for the the Baritone model I tested on my Bass sax a few years ago.

I have one for soprano, and it is a nice mouthpiece, though not very loud and a little resistant compared to modern soprano mouthpieces. It tunes a little funny.

I have had many over the years and my take is: Alto=OK, Tenor=not that good, Baritone=Very Good and Soprano=Very Good. The biggest problem is the tip openings which are often as small as .045 for Alto. Of the oldies, I like the Bueschers best.
