Thoughts On This Fiddle

Just picked up this new fiddle. The workmanship looks pretty clean. The LOB is 352mm and not quite sure if the scroll is a match. The fiddle is older than looks in pics and has had some shoddy touch up work. The corners have some characteristics that lead me to think inner mold?? Thanks for the help.

Is the back cleated?

Can you see any pins in the top or back?

Can you describe anything about the linings?

From the pictures, the rib corners do look mitered rather than pinched, and the grafted scroll is pretty rough compared to the rest.

The back is not cleared. This is the only evidence of a possible pin as shown in pic. The linings looks like willow or beech and blocks willow?  Also included and a few more pics under the hood and some rough measurement pics. 277095A1-9761-4195-BC50-6DBBBA1BCE64.thumb.jpeg.fe800477808b288a45a77ffaa1662737.jpeg

I thought so as well. Better pics of corners.
