Re: I need to know about Buescher True Tones
I understand the same thing as Jim. Truetones had three factory finishes in order of being most common:
Bare brass, Silver plate, gold plate or burnish.
It is theoretically possible that there indeed were some factory laquered truetones. Custom requests and undocumented experiments were not uncommon for the time from what I understand. Yet, also from what I understand about laquers of the time was that they didn't last all that long. The chance of a rare factory laquer lasting 80 years is on the verge of impossibility.
