Carried extensively, this Mulberry is a testiment to the hardwearing nature of Congo. Still stiff and glossy with a fabulously spaced print and that wonderful, dark chestnut glow.
Lightening to the base corners, (not wear) the top flap has softened with use and there are a few very minor surface scuffs.
A small, curved scratch to the rear RH side and some stray inking, (edge sealent) to the RH front handle base and upper RH side of the flap, (also shown in the last photo above).
The top handles are nicely firm and well shaped with inking dry to the sides and the rear inserts have impressed to the surface of the flap. The reverse handle bases show inking loss ,(which have most likely been re-glued at some point).
The Postmans lockplate is slightly dulled and there are friction rubs between the two underside plates.
The interior is clean but ruffled, as happens with this finish (no interior pocket on this model)
As with many Mulberrys made during this era, there is no Serial Number on the reverse of the interior disc.
Overall, a superb example of proper old-style Mulberry at its finest and a bag that looks so much better in the flesh than a listing of its faults makes it sound!
