Condition

Numerous areas of loose / flaking paint. Soiled. Overall the paint appears relatively stable and the flaking appears confined to current spots of loss. However, it is very possible that more paint flaking and loss may occur in the auction process and epically possible during shipping. We cannot guarantee that more flaking / loss will not occur after the lot has been photographed.
