Angry Mystery toilet

My daughter lives in a n old house (50+ years old). It was built in phases so it has mixed cast iron and plastic drain pipes, She has had a problem with her toilet flushing completely for years. Upon flushing, not all of the solids disappear down the drain. The bowl does not completely empty. The bathroom is on the first floor, but there is a walkout basement. She has public sewers. It appears there is enough water coming from the tank for a full and complete flush. There does not seem to be a blockage as the water goes down and does not back up. Any ideas?

I'm being nice today. If you were in my area you could hire me to fix the issue. Looks like a one hour job. Now you should read the forum rules and go. The boogeymen are getting up soon.
