Restoring 2 Ebay finds looking for a little help.

20190608_143606.jpg Any idea what this is on the blade? Was this blade plated? If so I have never seen that before. I'm sure it won't hurt the function since it looks like it has never been honed before and the spine and cutting edge are great. Thanks for any 20190608_143536.jpg 20190608_143606.jpg help you can give.

Looks to me like the blade has been sanded, and they have not gone up the grits high enough before polishing.

Yeah, that is definitely one thought that I had. There just seems to be something different about the look of this in person. That is probably what it is though. Maybe certain areas were targeted. Thanks.
