Hi All

I saw this SBA and I am a little suspicious about the stamp on the bell... What is your opinion, as I never have seen a stamp logo filled in white. Thanks...

I just came across this the other day. It might provide an explanation.
That would explain if the logo was less visible and worn out. Not really why it would be more visible. Unless it was then re-engraved and filled with white. Which could I guess be a possibility.

Collectors rub white chalk into markings on many things - perhaps it was done on this sax.

I've seen the Selmer modern low end horns with logos like this... That's what is bringing a red flag up.

I like this explanation best so far. It’s too regular to be oxidation.

I hope they didn't try to clean lacquer with Brasso, but your idea of polish in the engraving has merit too.

Surely it's just polish residue? Looks exactly like Brasso (or something similar) reside to me. That was my immediate reaction before reading the other comments.
