The tenor is a relac from about 1960 the alto is nickel silver so unsure to be honest but probably as it’s a 99 yr old horn.
Both play awesome

I think the alto is nickel plated (i.e. plated with metallic nickel). Nickel silver is a copper alloy (with some nickel and some zinc) sometimes used in place of brass for the body tube or neck tube of modern saxophones.
