The condition of this is... The outer box is close to perfect with no major creases just a couple of very mild creased areas coming in from the corners. There is very little wear at all at the rims of the lid. Over the word "Frequency" if you look very closely there is a small circular water mark. There are a couple of tears in the insert within- these are clear in my photos.
The gun itself looks unused- holding it up to the light I can only find the lightest of marks anywhere- and personally I only found one of these. I have tested it with batteries and both the (original) light and the vibration work when the trigger is pulled.There is no rust at all in the battery compartment. Furthermore there is no discolouration or light damage anywhere on the box or gun. Note- I notice in my picture of the transparent part of the gun it looks as if there is a crack- this is not the case, it is just the light reflecting. To summarise this is complete and I rate it near mint and phenomenal condition for an item from 1953.
