    I agree with with stumac. We used to call it "acid bleed". It is under the lacquer, so inaccessible until the lacquer gets removed.

    If the horn plays nice, do nothing and regard the marks as signs of idiosyncratic individuality.

    It used to be that lacquer finishes were specifically excluded from warranty.
