Very good vintage condition. No overt issues, holes, or stains. Cleaned. 70+ years old.

To note: minor signs of previous use and her age. A few tiny scattered scrapes to the nap of the fabric on the rear of the coat and one near a button, only found under close scrutiny in direct lighting, not noticed during wear. One pale scrape to the fabric at side waist area -- perhaps from a belt, since it's about the same area a belt would sit. See photos.
