Thanks for your replies;
The thing that concerned me was the nail nick looked very small compared to others from this era, almost like the blade was heavily cleaned and buffed to a point where the profile of the nick was ground down. The tang on the opposite blade looks like it too was ground and where the tang meets the blade there appears to be another "line". I am a newbie so I'll just have to take your word for it, thanks.

It's authentic but it may have been cleaned/buffed. With Sporty it is always hard to tell, even though he says it is "mint".
