It looks like it has most of its Silver plating intact. Just use a silver cleaner/dip on it, then rinse and clean with soap and water. Then use either a silver paste polish or a silver polishing cloth to shine it up. You can put the silver dip in a spray bottle and spray it on, since there is no way to completely submerge the body in dip.
Here in the US I use Tarn-X and Wrights Silver Cream. I do not know what is available where you are.
The FINISH on a saxophone does NOT effect the tone of the saxophone. Leave it silverplate.
