Hinge is very good and secure as is the grill. There is normal high point wear to the edges of the exterior. Normal mellowing of the gilt interior. Deep toning to the silver. Hallmarks are very good. The case is in excellent condition with only minor scuffing and the normal scratches on the top. The writing that is adhered to the label underneath is generally fine. Interior lining very good.
