Opps (red face) ... of course you are right Milandro. The question then is ... any indication that this is a replate or original from the factory ? Or is this too hard to tell ?

The only nickel I've seen on a selmer was a European MkVI, and there only the keys were nickel plated.

The gentleman who owned the horn was the original owner, and he said it came that way.

it was an original option mostly used in Europe where nickel plate was very common . You can tell you friend that it is most definitely not chrome plating. Nickel is very durable and makes the horn impervious to wear and scratches the only draw back id undenting any dents because it could , and more often than not does, crack when pushed.
