There are some light surface scratches and a patina, to be expected on antique silver items which have been carefully used and well cared for. The vesta case has a few slight dents but nothing too bad, (see photos.) The necklace is not made from a brand new pieces of silver, any scratches and signs of wear adds to it's character ;-)
