*****CONDITION: Very good. Please use the zoom and look at all the pix. Steel latches show some scuffing and small amount of rust, as does the central latch, more rusty. CORNERS show small amount of rust. A good cleaning and touch up with a STOVE BLACK ought to make them look fabulous, or leave as is for a naturally vintage look. LEATHER handle does show great deal of stress, and should be carefully handled so it doesn't break. STRUCTURALLY Sound and sturdy, and in great shape for an old Salesman case. **This great old HOOVER CO box will look teriffic in your collection or display. Please see my other items also listed.
