Button release mechanism on the reverse is not in working order - the back cover does not close. The fabric lining has torn in several places, and there is evidence of later glue repair. the hinged mechanism to the other side is in working order, snapping shut. Small split around the opening. There is moderate denting to the exterior of the case, very heavy scratching and wear. All chain links are in good order, no splitting or signs of repair, though there is wear and tear throughout.
