Yes, many are original to this house. They are also the same as mine. All hinges were the English cast iron butt hinges. All door pulls were missing but for one and was a forged bean. All exterior doors plus the door to basement have forged strap and pintal hinges. Basment has two and all other exteriors have three straps. All exterior doors were double panneled, meaning double thickness with an inside set and outside set of pannels. I had not seen this before, but I am not that worldly.
I replace the back exterior four pannel door with a new built plank door as the original was just too distroyed by dogs.
