At first review you'd be forgiven for thinking its barely been carried.
A naturally unstructured silhouette, (you'll need to add in a Felt Liner if you prefer the more upright look), its super supple, with an amazingly soft and tactile feel....like brushed lambskin overlaid with a Linen patterned gold foil.
Bright, bold and without any immediately visible wear. Corners are very slightly dulled, as the finish has flattened over the curves, but there are no marks, scuffs or scratches.
Plait top handle and shoulder strap excellent, the inking, (edge sealent) is slightly dry throughout the bag, though all intact, and stitching strong.
The Postmans Lock Plate displays hairline scratches, a little friction related finish loss around the hole and paling to the turnlock end, (which appears under magnification a slightly more silvery tone). A creak to the turnlock when turned, this sometimes occurs and is not a symptom of being weakened or compromised.
Scratches to the two, metal clad, satchel strap tip ends and contact friction scratching between the two underside plates.
The reason for the * rating is due to the scratches and tarnish to the RH side panels D Ring, as shown in the zoomed photo above. The LH one is unaffected.
Lined in clean, dark chocolate Mulberry Tree cotton with a zipped and leather trimmed slip pocket. The top flap is lined in a soft, ruffled suede.
