It is well worn but beautiful. The leather needs to be conditioned. It is not dirty because it was displayed in their home for the last 30 years. The horn leather is detached (as shown) and the bottom straps are dry. The workmanship is still amazing.The metal (not sure if it's sterling) has to be cleaned. I will try to answer any questions that I can. Thanks and check out the vintage cowboy boots and military items I currently have listed.
