Very good overall condition considering age. The case shows some mild scratching and a few nicks on the exterior from storage. There is some light chipping along the edges, and a single large chip near a clasp-see photos. The original hinges are in good shape, very slightly loose. The included ambrotypes show some light loss to the images from scratching and some light dust from age(see photos. The brass mats show some small spots of patina. The clasps do not hold the case closed.
