The condition of the stand is new. The base of the stand is a piece of three eight's of an inch thick steel polished to a high gloss and blued. On top of that for contrast is a highly polished piece of brass. The brass is sealed w/a coat of polyurethane to prevent tarnish. The pistol is held in place by a magazine attached to the base. The magazine is included with the stand. The cut-a-way Luger is not included in the sale but only in the picture for display. There is a three day inspection period.
