This antique sad iron has a lock adjustment on the cover with black painted wooden handle. The wood has a minor mar on one side of the lock adjustment but is otherwise in nice condition. I deliberately did not try to clean it or change it in any way other than as it was found, as many collectors prefer this.
The sad iron measures 6 inches long, 5.5 inches high, and 3.5 inches wide- 5.6 lbs. It is marked Asbestos 72-A Sad Iron: a nice old iron for the right collector.
