Very Nice Condition. Image shows very light wear with minor visible mat abrasions and a tiny chip on the man’s nose. Contrast is a little dark, but the clarity is nice. Mat and preserver show mild patina, and typical bending to the preserver flaps. Case has a repaired spine and shows some moderate edge wear. Interior velvet pad is a bit worn but has a nice design.
