Yeah, I wish it was tombac.
There is a halo around the solder that is copper in color.

Wurttemburg Front Plate

Hey Guys,

I am looking for a decent Wurt EM plate .

I just got one in and it looked great but after cleaning it turned out to be copper ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Missing antlers is OK but I rather have them on the plate.
