Refinish a WWII era Walther PP?

I recently obtained a WWII era Walther PP. I actually traded the EAA Witness 10mm I made a thread about earlier for it. I am now trying to decide if I want to refinish it. I know that refinishing hurts the collector value of an older gun but I believe it has already been refinished once plus I have no plans of selling it to worry about the collector value. The reason I think it has been refinished is the trigger, hammer, and mag release are all stainless while the gun is a polished black and still in what I consider very good shape to be 70 years old. I have searched all over the internet and have yet to find a single mention of WWII era PP's being two tone like this. I do know that it is WWII era because the serial number dates it to either 1943 or 1944. Would you folks go on and get it refinished or is there a chance I'm wrong about it being refinished once already and just can't find anything on the internet about guns coming like this?
