Condition:
Case: glass sides appear to be in good condition; one of the wood corner elements on the roof was previously broken off and reattached; there is a vertical split/crack to the wood element on the roof along the lower rim edge
The figure appears to be in generally good condition; there are currently two flags or banners that fit into slots on the figure's back, however, only two are currently present although another banner is present but it might possibly belong to a placement at the back of the figure's hat - in any event, this banner does not currently fit into either of the three available slots; there are losses to the plating, notably to the figure's face; the hat does not sit quite properly or securely on the figure's head

The nail guard appears to be in generally good condition
