This Unger golf motif match safe is in fantastic condition! Note the unbelievable crisp, fine detail thru out the entire scene. The boy's facial features, his fingers, ribs in his socks as well as the laces in his one shoe are all plainly visible. The backside is un-patterned and contains presentation of an "M" in a lovely Old English font. This piece is so close to mint as you can possibly find unless it is a new, unused match safe.

The sterling has no rips, cracks, holes, dents, nasty scratches, ugly abrasions or repairs. The lid springs closed firmly with a very loud snap in alignment with the body and is extremely firm in it's closed position. The striker is the early steel sawtooth insert and has wonderful deep ridges in an even depth. With our 10 power loupe you can see some minute spots of rust in the recessed portions of the striker that we are reporting to be accurate. But again the striker is crisp with even depth to the ridges-no deterioration . Our last photo, bottom insert, is the safe being held up to the light to confirm no open seams or holes. The un-patterned rims and the backside has normal as well as expected faint surface scuffing as is common from use and the old abrasive silver cleaners. The engraved "M" is well defined with very even depth.

The mark on the safe is on the interior front rim (see last photo). It reads STERLING 925 FINE with the intertwined UB hallmark. The safe measures 2 1/4" tall x 1 13/16" wide x an approx. 3/8" deep. An absolutely fabulous safe at a super price in this condition!
