CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine - Excellent): Lapel pin shows minor to moderate wear mostly to reverse, much of the gold fill and enamel details remain. Images shows hard tarnish on the edge in front and revers, but "tarnish" is not recognizerble on front and "light" tarnish on revers, overall it is much better look in person. Beautiful Pin! 

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
