Well shaped, the caviar leather is colour consistent, without wear and without the closest of inspections it looks perfect.
As happens with single flaps, the form softens slightly with use but there are no creases around the base or sagging to the sides. The suppleness of a single flap means it moulds nicely to the side or underarm so is wonderfully comfortable to carry.
Stitching is all tight and hardware is excellent throughout with only miniscule hairline polish scratches to the CC, underside plate and staff. The chain and leather intertwined shoulder strap is excellent also.
The smooth leather lining has one, small fingernail scratch to the interior, front LH wall, (see photo above), the remainder is as-new.
The reason for the * rating is due to some pin prick sized dots to the surface of the caviar. Two beneath the front flap on the LH side, diagonally above the staff, (see close up photo below and then circled for positioning). Completely concealed in use and absolutely tiny.
The other is to the base, just below the seam on the RH side, again extremely difficult to see in use.
The last issue is so vague, its almost invisible to the naked eye but a good camera will pick it up....a small, light, green toned vertical line to the front, RH side of the top flap. Incredibly difficult to find, even when you know where it is!
