OVERALL CONDITION

excellent with slight bumps and very minor surface marks commensurate with the lightest of use, no repairs, engravings or evidence of an erasure. I consider it unlikely that such a piece from this period would not have been engraved so any engraving must have been light and the silver more than thick enough to accommodate the erasure without leaving a trace.
