Mystery Vintage Mouthpiece

Several years ago I bought a King Zephyr Tenor Saxophone from a local high school student who was looking into just getting rid of it. I know now that the deal I got was AMAZING but that's beside the point. With this great saxophone came a mouthpiece with a facing of like 8. I can't really play on it great yet but I'd like to know what it is. On the mouthpiece there is this engraving: Made in W. - Germany in - U. Ausl. Patente On the otherside (what I assume is the brand name) is this: Strainon The mpc has a mobile piece inside the chamber that does effect the sound somewhat. Furthermore, there is a ligature attached to the mpc itself that slides along the mpc to adjust to different reeds. Does anyone have any idea what this is? Any help would be appriciated. Thanks

    I think it actually says Strathon, but some ink has worn off.
