Very good vintage condition. Cleaned and well-preserved. Clean and bright lining. 70+ years old.

To note: there are a few small and very faint beauty marks remaining and a faint streaky line near hem, attesting to her past use -- see photos. Subtle and do not stand out to the eye when worn/displayed. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more striking coat out there right now!
