Unable to identify vintage metal mouthpiece for tenor. marked 95

I sold my middle of the road Yamaha tenor and missed playing so I bought a used tenor off of craigslist.  I didnt look close at the mouthpiece when I bought it but could tell it was old and it sounded great, Jazzy and easy to go from mellow to really blowing.  I has a machined face where the reed sits and has only a 95 stamped on it.  I was told it was a Berg Larsen scoop bill but I dont know enough to verify it or not.  It seems to have an angle rright under the bite plate.  Is this what they call the "scoop"?  Any help with identification or a possible value would be great.

    The general form looks a lot like a Berg.  The round bite plate looks like a Bari feature.  You could look for web pics of Bergs and Baris and see if anything stands out.

      Does the shape of the inside behind the bite plate mean anything.  is it a scoop style mouthpiece?
