The slightest crazing around the snap. It retains all of its rivets and the snap continues to work very well! The steel based nickel-silver plated hilt retains 98%+ of its plated finish. The black bakelite checkered grip plates are in near perfect shape and are secured by two solid nickel-silver rivets. The HJ diamond shows minor cracking yet retains 98%+ of its enamel.
