Thanks for your comments. I knew that the bass was repaired when I bought it and the price was 600 $.
My aim with the bass is to use it at home for practice, for recording purposes. It sounds and feels ok.
There is in fact a (re-glued) mid seem on the outside of the bottom, se attached pic.
You said that you found pictures of this bass on Facebook. I am not a FB user so it would be of interest for me to know where to find these pictures. But I have posted a request on the Talkbass forum in order to get more information about the bass.

The ebony fingerboard has no visible string marks which is odd for an old bass and it has a flat area under the E-string. Otherwise it is straight and flat with a relief of 2 mm.
The top edges clearly show annual rings but the bottom edges does not.
I am used to taking care of my own fretted instruments, repair- and setup work, and hope to be able to do minor things on this bass too.
Hope this information helps and I look forward to further comments. Thanks in advance!
