Sorry to be dull folks, but I just got an old MgBr anser and dont know how to proceed.

The thing is that it's a Karsten Co Dalehead but its in appalling condition - covered in dings and pitted, weirdly discoloured (pink and green blobs) and with some of the patination rubbed off with a rough sandpaper. It also has the face caved in which wasn't mentioned in the listing. I think the shaft and the grip (pro only) are both original.

So what to do? Restore, return, leave as is... any other suggestions?

    I had Ron do a Karsten Co. for me. Looked like it was dragged on a gravelly road before I sent to him. Came back awesome. I would send him another without a second thought.
