I need to pick your brains. I purchased a used alto Moeck recorder recently on The Site Which Shall Not Be Named, and it arrived today from Germany. The recorder looks to be in excellent condition with the exception of some discoloration on the chamfer in the mouthpiece.

I've attached a few photos of what I'm talking about. It almost looks as though it's been singed (exposed to fire or smoke?) during its lifetime. (It doesn't smell like smoke, though.) What do you guys think?

I've sent an email to the seller to ask her what she knows about the history of this recorder. Certainly, none of my other recorders have had this discoloration.

Thanks in advance for any insight --
