This piece is as heavily milked as most I've seen and I'll let the picture(s)(I have more, sent upon request) speak for me. I do not use the term "Mint" but this one has no post manufacture flaws. No chips, no cracks, no scratches, no scuffs, no dings or pings or flea bites. The embossing is BOLD. If you want this piece it will cost you $500.00 and I'll pay the postage.
