It may be nickel plated (nickel silver is used to make flute and in some very rare case saxophones bodies).

It’s a Bundy II probably made for some marching band requiring a “ silver look” or the fact that a nickel plating horn is more resistant to rain. Despite this particular example looking very nice, these horns have a terrible reputation (at least in the NL) and sell for money way below the cost of an overhaul.

Even if now may not need anything other than a regulation , I think that If anyone were to buy this with the prospective of spending, some day, more than a very average student horn may be worth, would be daunting.

The Bundy II is the only horn ever where I was able to bend the left hand plateau by simply playing the damn thing.

The expression "putting lipstick on a pig" comes immediately to mind.
