I think the geoff lawton pieces have the words and letters in a small font, and the newer jason lawton pieces use a large font.

how can you distinguish whether it is an old(Geoff) or new(Jason) Lawton mouthpiece? Lettering ? Size ?
many thanks
I think there are two things here 1) whether newer Jason made Lawtons are the same as, or similar to ones made by Geoff, and 2) an unscrupulous seller buying a new one and selling it as a late model large font older piece.
Regarding 1) - I bought a newer metal piece for bari, and it played great, no problem with it at all. I ended up selling it as I preferred my larger tipped HR older lawton piece
Regarding 2) - if someone's really done this then it's pretty poor, but if there are late pieces made by Geoff and Jason that both have large fonts, and there's no way to tell, ie they both play well, then there's nothing you can do. If a piece plays well, it plays well, and you've got a good piece. If it's a new piece sold as an old piece, and it cost you more, then that's just bad luck.
