probably too early but it could be from the mexican factory, but i doubt that, perhaps it was buffed up so much that the engraving vanished and then relacquered in the 80s or somethin?

It is a transitional and they came in many formats.
You could find 6m style with no engraving, Chu style with naked lady and so on. I have a transitional bari 12M style, they are generally very good horns. If you are not worried about looks thats a great horn for the money.

Definitely a nice score, Luis! As the above posters have said, it is common for the transitional period horns to have different styles of engraving, all the day down to some of them simply saying "CG Conn" on the bell and nothing else. They are great horns (I might even say better than the Chu or 6M...), as I am sure you are finding out, and you got it for a good price.
