Very good overall condition. The case is in great shape, showing some very light chipping along the edges and a couple of small cracks near the clasps and hinges. The velvet interior pad shows some light discoloration along the edges. The included ambrotypes show some light scratching and minor patina from age. I also put a new piece of white backing paper on the relievo to make it pop more-old piece was stained and lost its effect
