VERY GOOD. This sweet Victorian 9ct Gold "Captain's Wheel" compass pendant is in very good antique condition. Although the compass does not work, the arrow still spins around and she makes for a gorgeous decorative piece. There are a few chips to the surfaces of the compass, and the odd dent and scratch to the 9ct Gold, but all in all, she has lasted beautifully over the years.
