NOTABLE QUIRKS: Shrinkage gaps. Lid stay is old and slightly temperamental so doesn't always hold the lid in place every time. Paper lining is marked and missing pieces in places. Beech bandings have old woodworm holes and trails, predominantly to the lid, and have been fully treated with a 3-in-1 wood treatment.
