Is this a veneer? Plywood?

I'm restoring a mid century modern desk. The matching dresser was solid wood. I've suspected from the start that the top of the desk may be a veneer due to the corner that appeared to be like banded edging that had chipped. There were a lot of rough scratches and imperfections and it had a really dark stain, so I started sanding with 80. On parts, I sanded off the grain. The grain of the desktop doesn't really seem to match the rest of desk... Is it a veneer?
