I realize I'm not batting 1,000 lately on this subject, but on this one I say original. The engraving is not filled in with lacquer and a lighter color than the surrounding lacquer. Plus the lighting for the photos is pretty intense, perhaps even fluorescent store lighting, so it would probably look darker in person.

I think its original because the Conn engraving has never been as deep as most and it is very easy to lose all of the fine engraving during a re-lac. The fine engraving all seems to be there on this horn. Did you win it? I hope so. It looks like it would clean up well and be a great axe

I saw the horn on E-bay at 2AM after last night's gig. The price seemed wrong for a Rolled-Tone hole 10M. This morning around 7AM - It was still there. So I went ahead a Bought it now. I had a 10M a few years ogo - beat-up relac with non-original neck. Be listening to a lot of Sal Nistico and the 10M was his horn of choice. It will probably be a buy and try - deal.
