As a seasoned thermoplastic case collector, I can easy say that CDV cases such as this one do not come to the market very often. CONDITION : Please view my detailed photos for the actual condition of the image and as part of my description. The early 1/8 plate case retains good hinges, the standard solid velvet pillow adjacent to the image compartment. The case retains the clasp system which works.
As mentioned above he case also includes the original paper label, wonderful velvet pillow, the preserver, mat and old cover glass. The only condition issue is the common small chip seen at the clasp, otherwise this is a very fine example.The mat area measures approximately 3 3/4 X 2 1/2 inches so you will know if your tin or ambro will fit properly.
