Hoping that some of the CEF collectors can help out.

looks fine

..also those are the original lugs. The discolouration is from the original attachment of the lugs. If the lugs had been replaced, you would see new solder.

Of course we can nit pick every single thing....but one thing stuck out to me. The insignia looks like insignia that has come off a battledress and re-sewn onto a new one.
