The wood cover has some decorative pieces missing, missing on the front corner. The person who refinished the cover left the remaining decorative pieces on the cover so it looks natural. The wood cover has had some reinforcements added to the inside thus, they have effect on the appearance.
When I got the machine the treadle belt was in place and the machine "worked" well. (By work I mean the treadle worked great and the needle went up and down with ease). The belt broke shortly after I got it so one will need a new belt. If one turns the pulley where the belt was the machine moves very freely and one can tell/see that it has been oiled recently and well taken care of.I do not see any obvious defects. I did notice the thread winder that is powered by the same pulley that the belt turns is missing the small rubber part that engaged the pulley to spin the winder. Other than that its a pretty amazing machine from the 1870's that has a great look and in is very good condition.
