Overall in VERY GOOD, attractive appearance. Please study my photographs for a few minor spots or scratches - these are truly commensurate with age and hard to see - there is a rough section of the bottom edge of the back side this doesn't show when the Secretary Desk is placed up against a wall surface in your home. The majority of the use spots are dirt spots inside the 3 drawers which you only see when you pull the drawers out to access your precious collectibles. The are signs of re-fortification/ repairs to some of the feet done sometime during the previous 70 years.As they are now- they are strong and sturdy feet supports. If you have a favorite shipper- it will be ok too. Local pick-ups - we are convenient to I 95 and of course free-of-charge. Please ask any questions that you may have.
