The catch cup has no chips or knicks either but to get ultra picky I want to say if you run your fingernail around the rim you will feel a number of teeny tiny fleabites which I guess translates to say you feel a slight roughness throughout but it's nothing even visible unless you study it under a magnifying glass. Also, the base rim is worn smooth from decades of counter sliding use.
You can really feel the love that this coffee mill must have had with this unavoidable patina. I just described this is super fine and picky details, Most people wouldn't consider what Ive talked about as issues, but I just want you to know it all as if you were here inspecting. Overall this is a fine looking and operating, all original, 100 year old coffee mill and has survived largely unscathed ready to continue making people smile, probably for another 100 years! I will be removing it from the board and disassembling everything for safe packing and travels.
