I think about to buy a Aristocrat series 1 it got 99% lacquer but the lacquer is
redish bronze colour / engraving is crisp ....but I never saw a Aristocrat with that lacquer....I saw a 10M with that redish lacquer....

any Aristocrat owners have a original lac. horn with that more redish/ bronze colour ?

I have a King Zephyr with that color lacquer (original) as well. Seems that more than one manufacture used lacquer from that source at one time or another.

We currently have 9 Aristocrats in the shop, all 3 series. All my original instruments have that color lacquer which is darkened by exposure to ultra-violet light.
