    Should I replace this quill stem?

    It is a nitto delux it was in a crash. It seems solid however there are some marks on the post that are of concern. Nitto Stem.jpg

    I should have added that the post was inserted right at the marks that were left.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. Just looks like normal use marks. Clean / polish it to make sure there's no crack, but it looks OK to me.
