One epaulette end has damaged to the black section. The other epaulette end has damage, with fringing having come off, and the end quite badly damaged. Ask for photos.
There are two holes close to each other, approximately 2 cm diameter and 1 cm. The central decoration has a small hole, but you can only see this when you hold the shawl to the light. There are a few small nail head holes in a little group to the main coloured body of the ground. These could easily be restored. Ask for photos.
