Some finish checking on top. Would have been correct period for original truss-rodded neck, has a later 50's style peghead "Gibson" inlay, also probably lost it's fingerboard extension at this point. Replacement fingerboard goes unusually far down body, perhaps it's a longer one from a later F-mandolin. Unusual wear marks on back
