There is some light pitting at the end of the barrel. Barrel markings are correct for this year of manufacture, as are the tang markings. The wood original with no cracks or chips. There are some dings, but not bad for it's age. There's no evidence of sanding, the wood is flush with the metal and not below the metal surface. It has been varnished.
