As you can see from the photos the case closes and locks, there is just some slight separation from the sides of the case but that does not detract from its functionality or beauty since its generally open anyways. Like most, I picked up the collecting bug many years ago when I was younger rummaging through the nooks and crannies of my grandparent's summer house in upstate New York.
Today, you can still see me doing the same thing, only I don't fit through much anymore but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the thrill of the hunt. Since I know you have the same eclectic tastes as I do because your reading this, please check out my other items section as I always have new unusual stuff coming in! It is my believe that the condition of an item is subjective, so I encourage you to look over each photo for your own condition assessment and when needed, inquire about additional photos or information regarding any of my items. As with any vintage item, there is expected to be some general signs of use and wear; if there is no mention that an item is New or Mint, you should expect this to be the case.
Additionally, please feel free to contact me regarding any questions or concerns. I try my best to accurately. Thanks for viewing and making it down this far!
