Barely, according to history in their website: "Since the first mouthpiece order was made in 1919 in the garage of founder Jesse James Babbitt, the company has focused on craftsmanship as the key to progressive mouthpieces. After learning his trade at Buescher Band Instruments in Elkhart, Indiana, Jessie went into business for himself. With the help of his brother, Rollie Babbitt, Jessie's idea became reality."Did Babbitt even exist in the 1920s?
It looks like most mouthpieces from 1910-32.
Looks like a 50s one to me....not sure however.I don't know what that mouthpiece was, but, in hopes of being helpful, I've included pictures of the original Conn EZ-Tone mouthpiece, ligature, and guard that came with my 1934 Conn. The EZ-Tone has been described to me as "the 4C of the 30s and 40s". Now you know as much as me.

Possible. I was told by the first and, at that time, only owner of the horn that it was the one that came with it when he bought it new in 1935, and he had later bought a Brilhart that also came with the horn (when I bought it). Memories can fade over an 80 year period.Looks like a 50s one to me....not sure however.
