Pretty exceptional condition considering its 140-year old age. The body retains a lot of the original gold paint on both sides. Obviously there is some loss, which is a bit heavier on the left side than the right. The head has some darkening and oxidation with a little paint left in the crevices. The detail is nice overall on the casting. The action works very well, with a lot of snap left in the creatures jaw. Sold as is, please review images and ask any questions you have before committing.
