Notes Glass is intact, it has no chips. There are smiudges amd dirt spots inside and on the exterior. Inside's bottom is pretty dirty. There are two marks like this ( but upwards on the glass to the right of the front label and a small circle mark as well. Paper labels show wear, they both have several tears along the edges as well as some on the center parts of the label all which reveal the glass underneath. Labels' background color is stained and appear to no longer be the original color. Label is also quite dirty having smudges and stains as well. Cork is broken on one side of the top, and has small pieces missing all around and fractures along the sides and one on the bottom. There is a dark brown spot on the top and the sides and bottom are no longer light brown but grey and off-white.
