Very good condition (8/10). Recently returned from the “spa”, the edges have been re-sealed and the leather polished. There are several scuff marks on the outer (normal with box leather), particularly on the back. The leather, being over 40 years old!, is cracking in some places and generally worn. The hardware is in excellent condition with little wear and only minor hairline scratching. The interior is in very good condition, no major marks, but light signs of use after 40 years.
