Very Good condition. Image shows some mild spotting and light scratching, but clarity is nice and the subject is largely unaffected. Brass mat shows moderate patina. Preserver has heavy bending. Case has some heavy warping on the bottom corner and some mild chipping along the edges. Hinges are loose but are holding. Original label intact behind image. Clasp does not hold.
