Not to be contentious here, but only in the spirit of helping one another: it has a tooled top, not an applied top. Here are a couple of examples of applied tops that aren't too obvious, the arrow indicating the spot where the neck was separated from the blowpipe.
Sandchip, thanks for the pictures. I have seen the type of top in your first two pictures, but always assumed that it was tooled tops with defects in the top of the neck caused by the tool. I learn something new every time I sign in.
