Very Nice overall condition. Image shows some very light scratching, mat abrasions and dust. Brass preserver has heavy bending. Case is in nice shape showing a couple of small chips on the exterior. Hinges operable and clasp functioning. Interior pad and label intact, label showing some discoloration. Last two photos are High-Res scans of the uncased image for your zooming pleasure.
