As mentioned before these are fully functional and operational. They are over 100 years old and their condition reflects this... The leather has marks from use on it but it is FIRMLY ATTACHED and has years of life left. There is a small ding on one of the bigger lens rings but this does NOT INTERFERE with it's operation and is consistent with use and age. There is nice patina on the brass fixtures, some paint has been worn off due to use and there is some chipping of paint off the aluminum body... These will also come with there original cotton bag... Does have a few holes and a few stains but still fully functional... These would make an EXCELLENT addition to anyone's collection!!! Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
