This one appears to be an ordinary stenciled Conn. As I understand it, most or all are.

Bert Brandsma, the great Dutch bass saxist, demonstrates a Conn-made Martin and a name-brand Conn 14M on this video.

No I do not believe so unless they made a couple only. Bass Sax Coop is a good source for this. No Holton listed in their database
I own a Lyon & Healy (Buescher) which plays wonderfully using an old conn eagle bass MP.

For what it's worth, Martin definitely made bass mouthpieces. I use one on my 14M (stenciled 'Beaufort American'). It plays much better than the original 'Conn Eagle'.
