Old Veneer Wood Floors

Was wondering the safest route to go for refinishing my 1880 wood veneer floors? I am worried about sanding and and there are a few slight damages to the floor. There are also several different directions in the wood grain as it is also inlaid.

Keri,

Why do you think these are veneered floors? This would have been very unusual in a home of this age. This was way before the advent of engineered flooring with its thin overlayers. Ornate patterns would not be uncommon, but they would have been made from solid wood stock.
