Hi,
I've seen an old otto link tone master with an "S5" written at the bottom of the table?
is it a normal 5 facing, or a short facing with a 5 tip opening?
any idea?

I think I may have seen that piece on eBay awhile back. I asked a veteran mouthpiece refacer if he had ever heard of that stamping on the table. He had not. If it is the same piece it didn't look quite so minty then. Are you sure that it has not been refaced or replated? Have you measured the tip opening?

I have an original STM with a "G" on it.
Got it that way in the late 70's.
Anyone seen letters like that before and know what the story is?

Maybe "G" stands for "good". I've always wondered how to tell the good Links from the rest. :cool:

OMG...that's the famous "supra" number 5. :D



Maybe it's something special.
