More Information

No cracks, chips or losses to the enamel, however there is light surface scratching and wear throughout. There are minor manufacturing faults within the enamel (as pictured). There is moderate scratching and wear to the silver surfaces of the mount, but no signs of splitting, thinning or repair. There are several areas of nibbling and moderate wear to the ribbed detail of the body commensurate with age and use. Minor chip to the base, a shallow fracture around the base, and scratching/wear throughout, mostly concentrated at the base. The glass body shows no other large fractures, cracks or signs of repair. Please see pictures for illustration.

The faults to enamel are visible with the naked eye under indirect light, however the eye is not immediately drawn to it. There doesn't appear to be any obvious signs of restoration to the enamel. When the striker is straight in front of you, the blemishes to the glass are visible.
