Good. I have replaced the elastic at the back - the buckle is not original. Three mother of pearl buttons have been sewn on, but these can easily be removed if you are lucky enough to have your own detachable waistcoat buttons. There is a small rust mark and tiny hole in the neck strap, and a very faint, small mark on the front, as shown.
