This Mouthpiece came with a 1920+ Conn C-Melody I bought to fix up. There were two MP's with this horn. This MP looks like the old Conn MP with an Eagle on it, but instead it has an oval with "OveraP" in it and Paris France
under the oval. It has a steel ring on the bottom. See photos.
Thank you.

Thanks guys.
I failed to mention it has a 17mm bore. Same as Tenor and stamped 066, for gap size. Also a step in the chamber.

Funny thing is I have a similar mouthpiece to the one I linked to. But no name on it. I took a close look - it has the same ring as your one around the inscription, but the ring is barely visible and I hadn't noticed it before. Inscription is long gone. Reinforcing ring around the shank is different, flatter. Table appears to be silver plated and the ring may have been. Reinforcing ring seems to be nickel silver, possibly also silver plated in the past. Very narrow tip, I can't play it. Maybe I should find some hard reeds and try it again.
