The leather is beautiful. Bright, colour consistent with the wonderfully bubbly lambskin plonge texture.
No wear, corners are perfect and at first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking it was nearly new.
The oversized Postmans Lock Plate is excellent with just one, pin head sized ding to the upper LH side of the 'E'. No visible scratching at all!
Light friction rubbing between the underside of the plates and some scratching to the sides of the turnlock end, the Drings and buckles are as-new.
Two dot sized black marks to the surface of the leather, one on the rear LH upper side of the bag, (just above the seam) and the other on the lower LH side panel curve. The main reason for the * rating is a tiny 1mm catch on the front lower side, just below the pocket, (all shown in close-up detail in the photos above)
The shoulder strap is firm, unworn and as-new excepting a small catch to the underside at the top edge. Inking, (edge sealent) and stitching is all in place.
The interior is fully lined in a dark violet suede. Clean, smooth and utterly beautiful with a side zipped pocket and two slip sections.
