Is this a coticule?

Is this a vintage coticule? By looking at the cut corner seems to be.

I sure looks like one. It needs some cleaning. (and maybe, just maybe, some surgery...:D )
A good scrubbing with with something like CIF or Comet (the stuff you use for cleaning the bottom cooking pans), is a good start.
After that, a prolonged slurry rubbing with a slurry stone. At that point you can decide if it needs lapping.
From here, it looks reasonable flat. (Flat enough)

Kind regards,

Looks to me also Donald
My vintage Combo looked like it had spent 30yrs in bottom of an engine when I first rescued Her.

I look forward to seeing how it scrubs up
