Very good condition. The material is nice and strong! The condition is remarkable for its age. There has been no attempt to launder the coat. I feel a good wash would freshen the piece. There is some very light soiling here and there. One inside skirt pocket has torn and come away from the inside seam 4 in; 10 cm. The front of each sleeve has a 1 inch; 3 cm and a 1 1/2 inch ; 4 cm which have come unstitched.
