Very good vintage condition with flaw, sold as-is. Cleaned. 60+ years old.

I bought this one not realizing the vertically-oriented ribbed pattern on the right side of sweater is not an atomic motif, but some kind of knitting flaw. Selling as-found for the price I paid. Can definitely rock her under a jumper, layered under a little denim or leather jacket, or just accept and love her as she is.

I darned a few small holes at underarm, shoulder, and waistband, but the nubby texture is forgiving and the work is invisible unless inspected inside-out.
