Default Hank Greenberg Louisville Slugger

Hi everyone, I live in the metro Detroit area and came upon this bat, the condition is amazing for possibly a 70 year old baseball bat . That is why I joined this forum for help , could this be a replica bat , in researching this bat it seems to be the real deal but I am skeptical because of the condition. I would appreciate any opinions or knowledge about the baseball bat, see pictures, G79 on the knob, it is over 34 inches but not 35, Genuine Hank Greenberg, trademark reg is pre 1950, thanks in advanceDB460C56-2BA7-4C4C-93A8-BB0B719AF806.jpg

Looks to be from the 1960s based on the 2 in 125 being directly over the & sign

Agree with Brock . Could even be a little later, but certainly not earlier

Trade mark reg was 1940s mark. However the font and brand mark on your bat is not correct for that period .

Weren't there a bunch of replica bats made in the 80s and 90s for autograph signings at shows for various players? Could this be one of those?

I have no idea , bat really looks to good to be 70 years old and I do live in the Detroit area and that is where he played, just seems odd Louisville Slugger setting up the cutter for such an exact bat , down to the trade mark differences and the G79 on the knob

G79 was one of his pro stock models. His records indicate he never ordered a bat under 35 inches
