I found a 1937 Conn 6M a while back and earlier today I decided to start polishing away the corroded spots. After doing so I noticed under the corrosion, it was silver instead of yellow. Why is that?

FWIW, I have a 1959 Selmer MKVI soprano that was lacquered by Selmer-Paris in France, then shipped to the USA where it was engraved through the factory lacquer (as reported by Douglas Pipher to me). The lacquer in the engraved area is gone. When I polish that area, the finish looks like silver in that area, but it is merely the original engraved bare brass. DAVE
