NO RESERVE

Condition:(1) Light wipes. (2) The pink is much more evident with even slight tilting, where it really comes forth. (3) Disturbances are on the glass, not the image. It is our opinion that cleaning the glass would greatly enhance the image. We assume an experienced jeweler could do that. (4) Light wipes. Can?'t tell if spots are on glass or plate, though it might just be the former. (5) Scratches.
