The brass portion of the lens is bright and clean. There is some tarnish and patina. The glass elements appear to be free from scratches, but they do appear to have mold or dirt on both the inside and the outside. The fixed portion of the lens is marked “AE Rapid”.
The ground glass has some dust but is not cracked or scratched. This also comes with the wooden piece that appears to be used to let light in to the lens. The wood on this piece is stamped “Amer. Optical Co Scovill M’F’G. Co. N. Y.”
