In overall very good condition. The bolts draw the posts up to the rails snugly. The foot and head rails are drilled through their sides, presumably for ropes. Boards have been added to the side rails to support a box spring. There is an area of lifted finish on top of one side rail, about 9" long. Normal minor mars, wear and abrasions. The headboard has a tight shrinkage crack, extending in about 8" from the outside edge.
