I would have no problem using that crank. But I am cheap. The teeth don't look like they are having any sawtooth wear at this point.

Some wear, more obvious on the smaller ring. I, too , have used worse.
Put it on, slap on a new chain, and see what happens.

Looks pretty fine to me! Might be able to flip inner ring if it's wearing on one side anyway?

Inner ring is only countersunk on 1 side , so if you flip it the sleeve nut wont be flush.

I know what you mean but is that a big deal or is it mainly for looks? So if you do flip the chain ring and the nuts are now no longer flush with the chain ring, could that cause a problem?
