This is a good price (in the UK!!) for 95% original lacquer "The Martin Alto"

Is it the original finish? Mine is much, much darker bronze, and my engraving is sharper

Hard to tell from photos I know, but what do you think??

It seems to good to be true from a 40's horn....

What a nice horn. It does not look like the original lacquer to me. The pads look fairly new too. Are you going to buy this one?
I have a nice original '57 one, so it would tough getting this one past the wife.........having said that.....she wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I could keep one in the case, and one on the stand :)

I was more interested because of the low price (they "retail" for around £1100-1200 here) and to prevent someone from being disappointed.
