It has gimbals around the compass body allowing it to swing in any direction. No dings or dents to case or gimbals. The compass comes in a read leather box in nice condition without damage and the leather skin is still in very good condition for its age. The push button to open the case is still in place and the hinge is strong. The compass is working perfectly and the gimbals allow it to swing freely.
