Each fully marked near handle and further part marked inside. There is wear to the marks, more so on one than on the other. There is overall surface scratching and wear. The wear is noticeable as an obvious softening to the high points. There are repairs to the hinge where it connects to the body. One with a hole/split to the cover and another split as well as a repair to the foot. This example rocks when placed on a flat surface. The hinge on the other somewhat loose.
