Antique shirt in excellent condition (used). Has been professionally laundered and starched since it was last worn (some years ago), and is in superb condition. There are some slight storage scuffs, and an inconspicuous half-inch tear at the back of the shirt, below waist level, shown next to a small coin for comparison. The neckband has been slightly cut to ease it, probably when a previous owner found it too tight. Previous owners' laundry marks inside shirt.
