The trombone clasp and pin closure are in good working order. The gold and hard stone have microscopic scratches from age. The hard stone is intact and in one solid piece, pristine, without chips or scratches. There are some spots where the scroll work frame is soldered onto the bezel, but all is intact. We will be happy to provide more closeup images upon request.
