The gonjo might not be original, but this is an old blade, and gonjos on old blades are often not original, the gonjo itself is old, the erosion seems to be more or less similar to the wilah erosion, the wedge is quite OK, the hole in the pesi could be a whisker smaller, but if the gonjo was removed during maintenance, something that is not at all unusual with older blades, natural erosion would account for the larger than necessary hole.

I can see nothing in this keris to cause me to question it, I'd accept as is, even if the gonjo was not the gonjo put onto it on day one --- and there is no way of knowing that with any certainty in the case of this keris.
