This is a vintage Phil Barone mouthpiece. It says ''Made with pride for Larry Ballow, April 3, 1991'' I have no idea who Larry Ballow is, but I believe he's a local saxophone player on Long Island. Just an inference from a few things I've read online. Next to that is says 0/96. On the other side it says 108 and USA. On the top Precision Crafted Carmel NY. This mouthpiece is of course older and some of the first ones he was making. The tips, rails and table are in great condition. There are two small teeth marks on the bite plate. You can see that Phil was still using the molded baffles. The saxophone looks rough but it's only cosmetic; the piece was never re-lacquered after it was worked on. What looks like scratches are just apart of the ''character'' of the mouthpiece. This piece plays the closest to his Hollywood model. These is no specific tip opening for this mouthpiece. I got this mouthpiece, liked it but unfortunately always played alto. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. *shipping over seas will be extra charges.
