Ruined? Neglected, yes; but if engraved when new, it was a very premium item. Nobody then was thinking "This will be a Significant Historical Artifact and Valuable Collector's Item in 80 years if I don't have it embellished."

That is fantastic. It is a shame it hasn't been better preserved, but I love the overall look of it.

These auctions with their buyer's premiums, They ofter add 10-25% to the price , then comes 9.85% tax where I live. Drives the price to unaffordable even when it hammers at a great price.
