This finish was not very common. Silver plated horns were most commonly seen in ex-military horns. This however, was not one of them. According to a member of SOTW, silver plate was an option available in the Martin catalogue in the late 1950s.

This is my personal horn. Note too, that these are the "before" photos. It will be going into the shop next month where it will be getting the few things that are wrong with it fixed, and professionally polished. I'll shoot some "after" pix when it comes back.

As you can see from the photos, despite having been played a lot the horn is in great shape, and not what we commonly see in vintage baritones—many of which have been beaten up, and show signs of major repairs.
