I would have to maybe see some different angles but to me it looks cast which is from what I understand a bad sign.
Looks good to me. Appears to be a "dug" item that was lucky to not corrode !! Or possibly just stored incorrectly, in any event, i thinks it's good!
Cast fake imo.
Looks like like its been in high heat and melted the solder off the pins. seen this before in atempt to age the look of the metal. Notice the fresh solder on the right back where the pin fell off. And cast flashing left behind around nose and eyes from front view.
Here pics of mine and mine It is far from perfect hope it helps.
