does anybody have a resource or a way to identify Meyer mouthpieces? On Mr. Theo Wanne site there is some confusion, at least for me, on how to tell them apart
Meyer New York USA: Early Model from the late model......

I had one of the later ones and you could clearly see the line where the sidewalls meet the chamber. I don't think many folks really know there's even a difference. When I sold mine on Ebay (for $650 a year or two ago), not one person even asked.

And there really ISN'T any tonal difference attributable to this very minor difference between the chamber cavity molds........

Thank you guys especially Grumps, I actually have two 6M.... of what I believe to be the early version, never used, found in a shop as old stock, you say they can fetch how much nowadays? (have they gone down or up in price?)....

When I sold mine for $650 (buy it now), that was about the range. Within a few weeks, I noticed some selling for up to a hundred bucks more, but then the NY/USA's seemed to drop back to around $600 or so. Haven't priced them within the last few months, but I suspect many buy them not even knowing the difference between them and the older Meyer Bros. pieces thinking they're getting a bargain. I'd suggest doing a recent sales search and setting a buy it now at the top of the range. It being a more open 6m might bump the value up a bit for modern players, though the traditionalists favor the 5m.
