The spirit kettle displays general scratches, marks, wear and tarnishing commensurate with the age and use. The spirit kettle does appear quite dirty and would benefit from a clean and polish. The hinge to the lid does allow some sideways movement. All hallmarks are lightly rubbed but clearly and legible, the stand and burner are marked with the standard, date and maker's mark.
