I have a mark VI alto 70xxx’s era that has a very different colour of lacquer on the low B, Bb, C and C# pad cups. I hadn’t seen this before, so just looking for some experts to weigh in and help me out with why this might have happened. The horn is all original, never relacquered. I have another 70xxx’s era VI I’m comparing that’s lost all of its lacquer so I can’t tell if it’s happened on that horn too, however there is a small difference in the patina on those same cups, so I’m curious if it’s a Selmer factory thing. Thanks!
