Does someone know what the mouthpieces in the attached photos are? They came in the case of a 1958 Mark VI I recently acquired. One of them has some faint text on the bore that I can't quite make out. I don't think they are Brilharts. Thanks in advance!

Those aren't Brilharts.

They look like the common generic white blank that was shipped with so many horns in the 40s and 50s (I think). I have one very like this, generally a good player although very very closed.

I think they're worth something like $20 or so.

Actually, the insides may well be essentially the same as Brilharts.

Check out Mark Fleming's website for a bunch of information on these and other generics. With a little facing work it sounds like they can be quite nice pieces though not valuable.

Thanks! Appreciate the response. I figured they weren't worth much. Just curious as I've never seen anything like them before (I have owned Tonalins before). There was also a Selmer Soloist short shank in the case, so that would be the bonus find.

They look like the ones used by Buescher too (it says USA right?)

Yes, the lower one is a Buescher. Can't make out the other one.
