Hi. I'm desperately looking to buy the above as a replacement for my old 1G which, despite refinishing, is almost beyond use. I have purchased 2 replacements in the past (341 series) but they feel a different size and just don't feel like my old trusty mouthpiece. I am aware of slightly different specs in the same Bach sizes before this thread goes of on a tangent. To recap it is definitely the Mount Vernon version I am after and not the 341 series or newer "Artist" version. Despite some research I cannot find when the Mount Vernons were discontinued but think it must have been in the late nineties. Fingers crossed someone has a spare looking for a new home. Many thanks.
