    This catalog shows the ultra-early 231 cornet (with the Ambassador-type wrap versus the Schilke-type wrap later adopted). I don't remember the changeover year, but this 231 was only offered a short while, and I would gladly buy the catalog and scan it high-res, then post here.
    https://sites.google.com/site/yamaha...alist/catalogs has some catalogs that show this type of piece; the Holton 1950s blank style is shown with a 1967-ish YTR-632, though no Yamaha mouthpiece lists from then exist...nor are they in any catalogs as a side note.

    I would guess yes, perhaps even as limited-production. Yamaha didn't seem to make mouthpieces for Conn when the 19/21A/B Directors came about [1971-3], but records are scant and one-offs abundant...

    Re: 1960s Yamaha...Connstellation mouthpiece?

    Take a look at this mouthpiece and compare it to the one in this listing...

    They look like the "modern/streamlined" numerical series Holton mouthpieces from the 1950s...though I don't know if this is a Schilke rim/cup designation...

    I wonder if anyone might have this specimen? Could be a catalog-only or short-lived product......
