At first review this stunning bag looks as if it were nearly new.
Well shaped, colour consistent and entirely without wear. Corners, curves, stitching and shoulder strap are perfect.
Light contact dings and hairline scratches to the Postmans Lock Plate, there is minor friction scratching to the underside plates.
Flex crackling to the inking, (edge sealent) at each side of the flap, as is commonly seen on these pieces.
Two very small, vague and almost impossible to see areas of glue discoloration to the RH side of the bag, on the front underneath the flap, (so not visible in use), on the upper RH side, near the aperture (see photos in gallery above). This adhesive is used in the construction of these pieces and the bag was not sold as Substandard.
A minisule stray inking mark to the rear, upper LH side of the bag, (see circled location and zoomed photo above).
The main reason for the condition rating is due to the minor marking to the interior microfibre lining.
Two pink marks to the top interior trim, on the LH side, general light pinkish marking to the upper RH side of the interior top flap, a horizontal smudge to the base of the flap and a U shaped one to the interior RH side. All shown in the Gallery above, these have been reflected in the price.
