Default Re-wrap or real? Ludwig experts please weigh in

Coming here to ask all the experts on this.
I recently just picked up an Oyster Black Pearl Pioneer from 1967.
Going through all the standard check points for originality I have posted the scarf joint pics. I definitely see the wrap going into the ply but this finish looks almost brand new. Everything checks out though. All the washers, hardware frozen in time with oxidation, minimal pitting, no extra holes anywhere, edges look like every other old Ludwig Pioneer I have & time is showing on them. Resocoat interior paint is chipping in some spots. Date smudged. Grommet appears untouched & oxidized.
My question: Is this the real deal? I believe it is but would like to know what you guys & gals think.
