The top is detached, but appears to be original. The top appears to have been reglued and set where the original pins had been in place. All pockets appear to show use except for the proper left rear pocket. The sides of the case have had a 1/8" shim added to the top of them due to shrinkage, which may be the reason for the top having been previously detached.
