New YTS-61 w/ Nickel plated Keys!!!

Well, I finally made the big plunge and traded my beloved VII for a YTS-61 a few weeks ago! It's turned out to be one of the best choices I've made in a long time. For 2 horns of similar vintage and inspiration, they sure are different! I fully expected the ergonomic upside. 'Was a little concerned about deserting the 'sound' I got on my old axe, but I"m having a GREAT time learning the nuances of this one.

Has anyone here ever seen or heard of a 61 with nickle plated keys? 'Case that's what I've got! I was shocked when I was it. I got it from a reputable seller here on SOTW and was afraid he'd sent me a 21... he didn't. When I took it to my repair guy he was also incredulous at first... then fascinated.
Anyway, that's my 222 cents. I love my 'new' Yamaha and plan to have it for a long time. Any info on 61's with nickel plated keys is more than welcome...

That would indeed be the one. I kind of like the look now, but I'm still curious about it. I've found nothing on line referring to such a horn... and there's no A in the serial.
I'm not certain that the plating is nickel. But yes, both the rods and keys are plated-
