Good condition. Image shows some brush wear across it and some scratches near the man’s face. Moderate silvering along the mat edges with light abrasions. The mat and preserver show mild patina. The Case is in very nice shape, showing some mild surface wear on the exterior and a small chip on a corner. Hinges and a tad loose but holding, Clasp is functioning. LP & Co label intact.
