No deep dings or dents, it has held its shape. The hinge is very tight and the screw top works perfectly to hold it closed and to open it. Surface wear and scratching from use and polishing over the years, a few nicks here or there.The screw takes several twists and quite a bit of length to open it, so it does not twist tight closed, but shouldn't fall open since it takes about 6 turns to twist the screw out to open it. Let me know if that doesn't make sense. Plenty of years left in this old, unique piece. But Please note that due to age this piece is not in mint condition. I have many chatelaine pieces listed so please see my other auctions! I dearly love, collect, use and sell antique American sterling silver flatware and housewares including Tiffany and Co. Gorham, Durgin, Shiebler and more!
