Condition Report; the set is in very good condition. There are a few dings on the pencil sleeve, a dark spot on one side of letter opener blade. All are in keeping with the age and use of the item. The seal leans to one side but as you can see in the photos it does stand on its own. The seal does not have an inscription. The box is a bit worn from age. The condition has been considered in the pricing of this desk set.
