I get involved in woodworking projects from time to time. The toughest choice to make is whether or not to paint the wood or stain it, oil it. There is something about the natural finish of an raw material that is evocative, alluring, intriguing, attractive. Brass isn't any different in that regard.

Exquisitely finished or unfinished -- each has its virtues.

I don't think we're talking about a "finish" here. It looks like we're talking about somebody taking a piece of steel wool to an assembled horn and scratching it up to simulate a vintage finish. A really bad idea.
Yes, in that particular case it was poorly done.
