Reckons its an early 50’s 5 star but it has horizontal drop outs, would that be correct?

he painted the bottom bracket cup while installed…

As does any reputable frame painter to avoid clogging the BB threads with paint.

Wonder what state it was in before the strip and prime? Also I thought the serial numbers of Malvern Stars were fairly well known, should be easy to get a good idea of the date I would think.
