DD dial real ? or real ugly? refinished or fake?

Just wondering what was up with this dial i was interested in purchasing from a fellow here on trf ...
When zoomed in some of the numerals appear to be held on with hogsnot or bondo? This is not normal right? Could it be leftover polish?

Cant figure out how to add the other pics.. Pm me thanks

I think we've seen enough pics to recommend against paying $975 for that. I'd think you could get one brand new from an AD for about that price.
