Bottom line hard to tell from poor photos.

took a closer look + tottally agree with your assessment of chrome over pits on l/s of frame -

I'll sell you one that is just about as nice with minimal corrosion and a fresh rebuild for half that price. Came from Duane Shaferly so you know it was done right.

Agreed Cobalt, that would take some time consuming polishing, something an assembly line wouldn't be bothered with.

I'm no expert, but I believe caution is justified.

I cannot answer as I am not familiar with many of the Daisy guns, however for anyone to answer it would help if you could post a link to the auction and or pictures.
