Yeah, that's a "brushed" finish. They did that to give a vague impression of woodgrain - on soprano clarinets it was usually reserved for the more-expensive ones.

They used that logo from the mid-'60s through the early 2000s.

The Eb contra-alto was model number 7181. I don't know for sure if the serial numbers used the same sequence as basses or if they had their own. But, I can't believe they would've sold enough contras for them to get to a "D" suffix on their own, so it probably matches the basses and you're correct on the year.

Typo correction: I said "it's definitely not metal."

I MEANT: "it's definitely not wood..."

Thank you all for your kind response.
The clarinet plays well, even if it needs some adjustments.
It has a big sound, with decent harmonic content (it's not wood...)
I paid it 1200€: still shiny, no scratches, nothing.
