once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

A job well done! I too own an engraved black nickel Leedy that had been painted. I removed the paint, only to find that a previous owner had sanded off the black nickel before painting the drum. Why oh why ...?
