My theory is this piano was in a fire and somebody put black paint over everything on the bottom to make it look more consistent. Has anybody seen something like this? The top part of the piano was completely restored, no fire damage evidence other than heavily sooted action parts. Parts were sluggish - maybe from being in intense heat? The legs were not original - leading me to think the original ones got too burned up.

Definitely fire damage. No question about it. You can see the charring on the bolted block...1st and 2nd photos.
