The case is also exceptionally well preserved with no chips, cracks or damage of any kind other than a tiny flea bite to one of the eight corners (the other 7 corners are sharp) and a second tiny flea bite at the center of the top edge. The closure is present but does not engage to lock the case shut. Overall this is a very attractive and well preserved Image and case that displays beautifully. Please see the scans below.
