The toothed strip which allows the draw tube to move up and down has broken and the knob which winds the eyepieces up and down is missing. The fine focus wheel is present and turns smoothly. The double sided mirror is missing its' glass to one side the other side is free from any cracks or chips. The prism and drawer are present. All of the stage adjustments work smoothly and the rotating overstage moves as it should. The microscope has two eyepieces, but no objectives. The microscope folds up and down well.
