    There are a lot of "no name" mouthpieces on eBay. This is likely one of them. It might be worth $10 to see what you get. But it won't be a gold plated Bach 7C.

    Be careful of cheap ebay mouthpieces from china, last year I purchased 3 of 3C from a seller, mouthpieces did not come nor could I contact the seller, did not reply to my emails, I opened a dispute and eventually got my money back.

    Regards, Stuart.

    All that glitters is not necessarily gold. I bought a cheap "gold" megatone 3C clone and really liked it. Then bought a batch of 3 so I could leave one in each of the cases of my three most used horns. As I ramped up practice time, the "gold plating" was only lasting about a month on each one. I don't know if the plating is gold or just really thin or some other (toxic?) coating.

    At least they're made of "metal". What kind? Don't ask.

    The Latin tuba was the name given to long straight trumpets. For a picture of one, check my avatar.
