Is this a relacquer?

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....

Most likely a relaq if the picture color is right. The color is too light. It is a good relaq, if it indeed is a relaq.
A 70 year old Martin doesn't usually look that good.

My experience is that the laq on these horns is a lot like old Buescher tends to look pretty bad as time goes on.
