Made of steel, this item is a VERY NICE example! Though it has been re-painted at some time, it is 100% original. Some marks and wear throughout. No markings that I can see, so are most likely hidden by the paint. Handle is original to the head, and matches is overall condition. An older restoration, it could use a good clean-up and re-paint to the correct color and markings. Overall a VERY NICE example, PERFECT item for any collection or display!
