Is This a Solid Wood or Veneer Tabletop?

Is This a Solid Wood or Veneer Tabletop?

Q: I recently acquired a table from the family of a woman who purchased it in 1964 and was the sole owner. I can't tell if it has a veneer or is solid wood. It is stamped "Walter of Wabash" underneath. It includes three table leaves. That was the big reason for me purchasing it — it opens to 98"! The family said that it was walnut, and that's all they knew. How can I determine the table's makeup so that I can clean it and perhaps refinish? Thank you in advance for any assistance. I attached photos. The last photo is the underside of the table.
