This is a genuine vintage and as with any vintage item there may be signs of wear, whilst the overall condition is excellent there may a few chips and cosmetic marks
Obviously this item is not new, it has been used in classrooms so there may be some light cosmetic wear, I have tried to photograph any wear I could see such a flaking paint, cracks or chips so please do check all photos carefully. We have two of these casts available. They may vary slightly.
