I just got this Otto link TM NY for alto indicated 4* but I’m not sure if it’s refaced or original facing. The seller told me it was an original facing but when I compared the tip with my modern Selmer Soloist E facing I didn’t notice the difference I was expecting, since vintage tip openings are quite small, I’ve got some pictures to help identify the piece, if some of you can help it would be nice,

Thank you

I cannot see it clearly, but especially in the first picture it looks as if the facing curve on the side where the siderail nearly touches the biteplate seems to be messed up- not a real ongoing curve up to the tip; maybe a consequence of a repair or bad refacing?
