Center locking guard is in good condition. Couple issues that I show in the pictures, which is minimal.
1 drawer corner has split ends and has been reglued by previous owner. Small hairline crack on front which is tight about 1 1/2. Board looks like it was cut for some reason on top right edge. With that said a great chest with many more years of use to come.With the nature and weight of the chest please be sure of what you are purchasing. I have outlined anything that seems out of place for the item in mention.
