In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, free of flaking or scuffs and shows attractive luster. The gold wreath and center medallion are pristine as well, almost completely free of even microscopic dings or scratches. The brass back plate has only a few tiny contact marks on the reverse.

This is a very impressive and beautiful piece. The version with gold parts was manufactured only in 1966; approximately 100 pieces were made in total.
