Very nice indeed and not presenting the usual problems of missing liner, tears in the felt or collapsed shell. It is rare these days to find one in this fine condition. Congratulations!

When I saw this one I pretty much knew itd be hard to upgrade considering the condition and the fact that it came 100% complete. Thank you all for the kind words!
