Default Did some maintenance today, do my cams and plugs look normal?

I replaced my valve cover gasket and plugs today, I noticed some wear on the camshafts and the threads on the spark plugs were gunked up with oil.

The car has around 87k on it, does this look normal? There wasnít any oil in my spark plug wells, and from what I can tell the valve cover gasket wasnít actually leaking. I think the plugs had around 35k on them.

Iím pretty sure I had oil consumption caused by a bad oil seperator a few years ago if that matters..

Typical wear. Nothing to worry about.

Looks fine. Good amount of silver let's you know that you're changing the oil often enough.
