Excellent condition. Bag has recently been cleaned and conditioned by Hermes and has not been used since. This crocodile bag cannot be shipped outside of the U.S. because it does not come with a CITES permit (bag is older than 1975 when CITES permits were first issued).

Excellent. Condition is excellent. There's a light patina to the hardware and the Hermes stamp has faded. Bag was clearly very well taken care of. Also, bag was very recently re-burnished with agate stone by Hermes. Looks amazing!.
