I've seen vintage wooden Bbs and As that look like they are new - the wood has obviously been oiled and treated (with what?) and the makers marks have been recrayoned.

Are the sellers dealing with the trade marks prior to treating the wood? I've read that the dealing with re-doing the trade mark can often bleed into the grain of the wood so which is the correct order?

From my experience, the crayon smudges over as you rub it in. Normally I clean it away with spirits and a cotton bud or can skewer so as not to damage the horn. I do not believe it bleeds (leaches) but gets smudged in to the grain as a consequence of the re-stenciling.
My personal bend is not to oil horns even though there will be some controversy about that.
If I was to look at an order I would probably stencil first so that the oil did not limit the stencil crayons ability to bind with the horn.
