Please note that this item is vintage and not in new condition. I have done my best to indicate any flaws or signs of age, but being vintage, signs of prior use are a given. Please note that the terms I use to describe this are subjective. What is blue to me may read gray to you. Colors are prone to distortion due to lighting and differences in monitors/phones. Please take the time to review the photos and description thoroughly and ask any questions you have. Thank you.
