Nothing apparently wrong with the frame, that's how they were made.
It's a legit early 70's "frame A" (as opposed to "frame B" made with Durifort tubing), without over-BB-cable-guides. The ser.no. confirms that. BTW, seatpost size should actually be 27,2, but it's not unusual that people used one size smaller because it "fits better", I've seen that more than thrice.
Condition seems to be good at that. And you wouldn't see many of these very early Champion Mondials even in the Netherlands.
Only that the price seems a bit steep to me ... but that's just me. For that money it'd be a pity to waste this rare frame on a fashion bike (~SS), IMHO.
