can anyone tell me more about this? at first i thought it was 8 * because i couldnt find a 3 but someone pointed out that it could be a very early model. my mouthpiece has 3 digits for a SN and i though the later models had 3 digits. i took it to a horn shop and the man definitely thought it was older than the florida links. i can send pics if you need them. just email me firstname.lastname@example.org. thanks for any help.
