~ Condition ~

The uniform has the some expected minor signs of wear but its overall condition is excellent. There is no damage, missing parts  or moth holes.
The lining is clean with no tears or holes.
The helmet’s badge has minor wear and the silver globe in the middle of it lost part of its shine. Except for this the helmet is in excellent condition.
The boots have signs of wear but they are undamaged and still look very good.
It would make a fine display on a mannequin.

Please note that the helmet stand is not included.
