You could see what the colors were and you could see just a hint of the decals and their location. I stripped it down to bare metal and then primed and painted it in it's original colors. I had original decals reproduced and applied them in the same locations. My daughter does all of the gold lettering as she is an artist and has a much steadier hand than I do. The grinding plates are in excellent condition so if you wanted to you could grind coffee again you could do so.
It is a very nice grinder to display as it is only 11" tall and the wheels are 81/2" in diameter. This would be an excellent grinder to add to your collection or to display in your home.
