I’m guessing 50’s but not entirely certain.
I have a Baritone piece similar to this and it’s a great player.
Not quite as good as my earlier Slant Signature Berg.
Mine is a 3 chamber though.
The shape of the bottom of the table and the milling marks tells me that it’s an earlier one but not a Slant Berg.
As to value, I don’t know but I would imagine around the $200 mark if speaking US dollars (which is generally what everyone here works in).
But really I don’t think Bergs get as much as some people think.
The very vintage pieces with Berg Larsen printed diagonally on the shank will get more.
But occasionally these pieces also do quite well.

You should be able to get $200.00 for a vintage offset lettering Berg. Yours is in very nice condition, it's a medium tip opening mouthpiece. I'll bet it plays well.

Thanks bluesman & B-flat.
Yes, it plays very well. Powerful, much volume but not sharp at all. I think its a very nice mouthpiece for pop, rock, funk.
