In very fine to excellent condition. The enamel is perfect with the exception of a tiny surface chip at the upper tip of the red star that is not penetrating to silver and practically unnoticeable to the naked eye. The details of the state emblem are beautifully crisp, and its original gilt finish is extremely well preserved. The wires holding the parts of the badge together are completely intact and tight. Nice dark patina to silver throughout. The screw post is full length, approx. 11 mm. Includes original mint marked screw plate in silver. Overall, a very attractive piece.
