Both the crosses on the king and the queen have been replaced and the "Jaques London" stamp is indistinct on the black king. There is a hairline crack to the black king and some very minor chipping to the raised bands on the black rooks. There is a very minor chip to the base of a black pawn. Otherwise, the set is very good, with slight rubbing to the green baize bases. 

The box has a slight crack across the top. The green label is an remarkably good condition, but with few indents. The pieces are weighted.
