Default Purchased used 6 speed...did I make a mistake?

So I picked up a used 05 STi 6 speed to swap into my Legacy advertised as 120k on stock power. Price was friendly and local but should I be concerned about the following images. It most certainly looks as if the thing was taken apart from the gasket sealer and oil leak?
Am I looking to get this serviced before I swap?

I would be more concerned with what looks like a big crack in the plate between the main body and the tail section.

If you had a concern, why did you buy it in the first place?

Its not a crack. Its a piece of gasket.

Looks ok, I just bought a used 6 speed also, mine came with an axle input shaft seized into the transmission. Good luck with the tranny swap.

If that's all it is, then from a couple of simple pictures, and no other info, it looks OK.

That's all anyone can say at this point.

That is definitely excess gasket, I had the exact same stuff on mine, perfectly normal.
