Still looks OK to me - a missing screw is a missing screw; unfortunate, but not a deal-breaker. Would have been nice if they'd volunteered the info however. The other screw looks like someone tried to remove it.
Butt-plate's been on the stock a LONG time.
IIRC, you usually collect MUCH nicer conditioned pieces? The issues you raised are pretty common on heavier-used specimens.
