    It doesn't seem that the item has a custom description, as those can be recognized by quotation marks. I'm trying to remember if the International Tournament couriers had the match description on them, or if that came along later, but I can't remember it at all. There were a lot of bugs with the Tournament items back then - that's also why the courier is Unusual as opposed to Tournament - so it could be it lost its match description along the way as well.
    Wished I could help better, but I don't remember a lot about them, and I can't find a lot of information either.

    OP, someone removed the custom description. If you right click a Drodo in your inventory which has a custom description, you can choose to remove the custom tag, it works exactly like a custom description from a buyable tag.

    You might try to send a ticket to Steam support to try and get the custom description restored, I don't see why they should decline this kind of request. I think the match tags on the tournament items should be put in a different section, just like the match ID signature.

    This is kind of a weird scenario because tournament descriptions have quotation marks and look and behave exactly like custom tags buyable in the store. The only way to know one of these items is not a counterfeit is by looking for a match ID tag. So the OP's courier is indeed a tournament courier, 'cept the description was removed.

    Not really, this was the case for all tournament couriers. Steam support says officially

    "[...] the unusual effect was given instead and cannot be changed."

    I think they meant tag instead of effect. All International couriers were given the Unusual tag instead of Tournament, mostly to point out they had unusual particles. So again, the OP's courier is alright.
