A dark bitter chocolate shade, there's very little wear, corners are very good, no marks, scuffs or detriment to the hide and stitching is all strong.
A gently softened top flap with a beautifully creasy rear, (if only the same could be said for us all!) she's still nicely shaped and with that characterful glossiness just beginning.
Firm, well shaped top handles, just a little dry, (Collonil Gel will improve this greatly), there's a small, very shallow, diagonal hairline scratch to the front top handle.
Handle bases are softened, as they have been stored downwards, but inking (edge sealent) is in place.
Some crackling and minor inking loss to the flex points at the rear of the flap, where it moves to open and close.
Please note the pressure indentations to the top flap, caused by the rear handle inserts, as is commonly found on this model.
The long, detachable shoulder strap is excellent with just a light sit impression where the buckle has been set.
Hardware displays general use with light scratches to the interior curves of the side D rings, friction scratching between the two lock plates and around the turnlock hole on the the front plate. A small scratch to the top of the Postmans Lock Plate, over the embossed tree, (see photo above)
