Is the blade on the pictured knife just as it came from the factory, or has it been "sharpened"?

Interesting little piece. I don't believe I've ever seen one before.

There was one on Ebay last week and the damn thing went for like $350.!! It's less than an inch long and it's not even an auto!! I guess some folks got more dollars than sense. Lol

Does the auto one have the same guards?

Same size, but I don't think it has guards. It's a lever lock.

The MOP scales on the mini lever are replacements, right?

I would very much advise against that. Based on the few I've seen, green is more rare. And even if they weren't, you want to leave a vintage knife with it's original scales if they are in good shape. Just keep looking for the black one, you will find it eventually. There are a number of mini-collectors on these forums (regular sized people who collect mini-knives, I mean). One of them will probably trade you a black one for your green one.
