If you mean that one side of the interior gear teeth are chamfered, that is not wear - it is by design. The pawls need to slip past the gear on the chamfered side, and lock on the straight side. The outside gear teeth look exactly how they were originally machined.

If you mean something else, I'm not seeing it - be more specific.

To help confirm Mark's analysis, what do the gears on the other winch in the pair look like? Old winches usually have issues with the pawls or the pawl housing notches that become worn or broken.
