Looks like a well played, but then neglected vintage Martin being sold by someone with either no info about it's provenance, or just completely clueless about ukuleles in general

Tuners are stupid easy to install and it looks like a new saddle might be needed since the old one has deep grooves in it. new saddle is also stupid easy to replace.

Total cost of parts can be as low as $25 or less (depending on what tuners you want) if you look around, like ebay, etc.

Cosmetic issues I would not mess with if it plays well, for it is a vintage Martin after all, and some battle scars should be expected.
