If sound is a priority more than appearance, don't try to have the horn relacquered. It will sound its best this way, and a good polishing once in a while will make it look more than acceptable. I played a 60's vintage 186 in high school before purchasing my own horn, and its sound was incredible. The fact that it had no lacquer and had turned a greeninsh color didn't bother me at all.
