So, I just won an eBay auction for a duckbilled 90/2/offset M stainless Berg, which I thought was worth the price that I won it for alone, as 90 is around my tip opening and I like the "2" chamber on bergs. But anyway, apparently there's an engraved "P" on this piece. I've never seen this before on any Bergs I have seen.

Has anyone seen this before or know anything about this "P"?

Thank you for any info!

Thank you for the info Mojo! I'm glad Theo has his website up again! I was really missing having all the vintage mouthpiece info at hand. Also, his mouthpieces look top-notch! I might have to buy one of his ligatures as well, WOW!

Anway,

I received the Berg a couple days ago, and I must say.... THIS IS THE BEST BERG I'VE EVER PLAYED! Wow! My opinions of Bergs have now changed after playing this piece! It plays with a mild edge; enough to cut through whatever I want. But, it has enough smoothness and low end to not sound like nasely. It is faced incredibly, and I assume it is original, or it was refaced by a true pro. After playing the piece for almost a week, it might just beat out my Brilhart Great Neck as my new main piece. It really is a great mouthpiece! Keep an eye out for these "P" model duckbill 1940's Bergs. They really are something special!
