Very good vintage shape, presents smartly. Cleaned and sturdy, showing normal light signs of wear/use. The belt buckle's fabric is a bit tatty on edges, a couple tiny and very faint marks near waist (not noticed unless actively hunting for them with my readers on, as this is a very busy, almost op art print). There is faint toning on inside neckline and tucked up by the underarm seams that remains after cleaning. See photos. 75+ years old.
