+1 to what 10mfan and KMR said - this style was made in the late 40's to mid 50's until the Soloists came out, so it would have been the mouthpiece that came with the SBA and maybe with some early MK VIs.

Is it a soprano piece? I have a 60's Soloist-Style soprano E, which has the E on the back, not the table - before that I had a C* of the same type which I believe I sold for ~$350 around 5 years ago or so.

Think you're right, according to Theo "The Soloist Style mouthpieces were produced primarily in the late 1960s and 1970s. Because they look like the Soloist mouthpieces, but are not marked Soloist, they are called Soloist Style." Here is a good reference: https://theowanne.com/knowledge/mouthpiece-museum/selmer-mouthpieces/

Now that I think of it though mine has a small round chamber, not U-shaped like the soloists. Did soprano mouthpieces keep the round chamber?
