CONDITION: There's exterior of the purse is dingier on the edges and more faded in color than the coin purse and lining inside. There look to be three or so missing beads on the front. Mirror is quite cloudy with age marks and the original paper holding the mirror is torn on the corners. Coin purse appears to be unused and so does the interior of the purse. Stones are gorgeous! Any flaws to the exterior must be a result of long-term storage. Very good to excellent condition!
