Very good pre-owned condition - this piece is strong and wearable but does have some age related issues including some fraying along the inside neckline lining (does not show when worn, a water mark on the back (it appears more as a tonal shadow) and a few scattered small light rust colored spots. Still presents beautifully when worn!
