Very Nice overall condition. The original sealing tape is in place, however it has lost from age and the plate can be removed. The mat/glass are still attached together. Minimal dust inside/on the image, and some tarnish is present along the rim of the mat area. The brass mat and preserver show some light tarnish. Half case shows some mild scratching to the leather.
