Fair overall condition. The ambrotype has been previously been “cleaned”, which is evident in the visible lines and slight green discoloration to the portrait. Though, I do think-personally that the slight green does add an interesting touch. The brass mat and preserver show some light scratching and patina. The leather case has a repaired spine, and the interior image sidewalls look to have been replaced.
