    looks as though it's been painted before. They're not usually that glossy black, more of a satin finish.

    That’s what I was thinking. Maybe the previous owners attempt to polish a turd.

    I’ve seen turd polishing and I’d be hesitant on calling a 5/4 as yous call it a turd.

    Here's what mine started as. You can see the original paint on the frame where I wiped it down. I got lucky most of the paint was there. I just repainted it semi-gloss black after a good cleaning.
