Smile My Browning Hi-Power Is it original or not?

Hey Calguners i was referred to this thread by fellow members. So just bought this 1968 T series pristine condition Hi Power. Not having a lot of experience in how to identify if the pistol is all original meaning color, components, parts and etc.
i purchased it here in calguns market place by viewing the pics and ending up showing it to a gunsmith at american gun works in glendale ca. so he looked at it and said its all original so i trusted his opinion and went on purchasing it. I've been in different threads and discussions here about how to identify if the gun is all original or not. Well not having alot of experience i'm kinda confused if i bought the Real Thing "Original" which what i ws looking for when purchasing the Hi Power. i wanna put out some pics and would like to hear your opinions on the Hi Power. If its all original , Not Reblued etc....Thanks in advance

I'd like to see a better picture of the company name and address line. Maybe not, but from the angle taken it looks slightly shallow on the top like it was buffed and refinished.
