This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals a minute speck of wear to the upper left corner tip, and some slight wear to the lower and upper right corners. Extremely close inspection reveals a fine network of drying cracks to the red paint at the upper centre. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
