Normal patina from age and use over the years, just as you would expect. This butter churn was used , so there are old nicks around the top hole where you put in and take out the finished butter. The handle is a little bent as you can see on one of the last photos. It could be bent back if you try.
I did not try to. It looks fine the way it is , and works fine. Nice piece to display in the kitchen or barn. I also have a lot of 3 butter churns in my other auctions , so please take a look.
