Nicely softened with that lovely creasy texture just beginning, the leather is thick, strong and a fabulous rich oak tone.
Natural surfaces scuffs throughout, a light fingernail scratch to the base and two small scrapes to the LH front corner, (see Photos above), there's only gentle rubbing to the corners..... its a bag that will develop character and a wonderfully deep patina as it ages, blending any usage signs with ease.
The shoulder straps are firm, well shaped with only slight darkening to the very top areas and an extremely vague pen catch to the rear RH handle, at the side.
Inking, (edge sealant) is intact throughout with the exception of the RH handle base rear insert which shows a tiny amount of loss on each side (near the top where the folds join the handle).
Hardware is very good with only a light, diagonal scratch to the lower RH side of the Postmans Lock Plate. A light diagonal scratch to the underside of the top plate and very minor friction rubbing to the base plate. Surface scratches to the base feet and turnlock end can be noted on close inspection.
The interior is entirely clean with a side zipped security pocket. The top seals with the Postmans Lock.
