Looks pretty hectic, is that some pickup on the cylinder wall? You can clean it off with phosphoric acid which is a bit of painstakingly slow process but I have done the same on my 125 years back but that was just a small amount on a relatively new cylinder.

Prob wants a re-plate to be safe.

Yes it appears to be aluminum transfer, it's coming off slowly with soft scotch brite. I'm confident I can save it
