This work is in very good and sound condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling to the edges of the elements. A light dust has settled in some of the crevices. A few scattered light surface abrasions, notably some light white scuffs in a lower box, and a few minor pinpoint spots of loss are visible under close inspection.
