Default Hammer finish: Yea or Nay?

I have a '49 M&P .38 snubnose K-frame that I'm getting ready to Parkerize. Should the hammer have a finish on it, or would it just be case-hardened? The bluing on this grubby old thing is mostly purple-ish brown, and I can't tell for sure if the hammer used to be blued or not.

They were case hardened originally. Someone like Turnbull could restore the color to them.

If you are going to parkerize it anyhow, I don't think that I would spend the $$$
