The white paint on the sash has flaked quite considerably and there are many flecks of loose white paint under the glass. Both epaulettes also appear a little flakey. The left shoulder close to the edge has been rubbed. The upper half appears faded and there is some yellowing to the background. When held at a certain angle there appear to be lots of light scratches on and around the head. Not seen outside of glazed frame.
