The section has some long, thin scratch lines probably from capping. The cap has microscratching all around along with some tiny dot marks especially toward the cap lip. The clip has a little plating wear along some of the edges but it looks excellent overall. The tassie has scratching along the upper rim. The imprints are clear.
