Mostly very clean. Small amount of pitting near point, some blackening around some of the etching. A few very small scratches but nothing major.
Col Wayley Cohen, I believe, was great-uncle to Sam Wayley Cohen, Gold Cup winning jockey and the man credited with getting William and Kate back together.
God save the Queen!
