  1. Probably used a stage that was EOL and needed to be retired.

    Dunno, for sure, but they use the old-timer boosters for their Starlink missions.
    Doubt if they’d risk a paying-customer’s mission on an engineering test to see what the actual retire-by number is.
    Stg-1s get sooty during entry/landing burns, but this one looks really clean.

    Be interesting to know if SpaceX priced a ride with an assumption that they’d recover the booster or if they had a deposit that they gave back on recovery
