hi

I got this mpc. from the eBay today, it looks ugly but plays great. I assume that D models are "standard" and most popular, but this M chamber is also bright, focused and punchy like D models, but feels and plays better throughout entire range, especially bottom end of the horn, but altissimo is also easy and safe.
It is definitely wrongly numbered, as the tip fells more like 8 or even a bit less and it also has famous "wart", although less pronounced than D models. Also beak has asymmetrical cut.
This is probably from the seventies/eighties?

The 'M' was my choice too - the most powerful mouthpiece I ever played. Yours has a little bumpiness on the tip that would be easy to remove and it might play even better. Just be careful with it - its pewter and very fragile.
