Buffet

If it's plastic it's not a BC 1231. That's a couple of thousand quid's worth, and is made of high quality african blackwood.

Mouthpiece could be from another instrument.

Are you sure there are no other markings on the joints or bell.

Some photos may help.

The faded marks on the mouthpiece probably say Buffet Crampon Et C. That's & Co. to us. They use a peculiar squiggle for the E. You can always sell it as an unbranded instrument. There are plenty of them around. As Kev points out the mouthpiece was probably bought as an upgrade.
