Freeman's Comments:  The ends are intact, the sides are intact with minor repairs/unraveling to parts of selvages.  Carpet has a generally even short clip.  There are no large areas that are threadbare.  With the short clip, there are numerous places in the brick field where parts of the  warp are visible.  In parts of the brick field, we note some repairs, including an approximate 1 1/2 x 2 in. area in the field just outside the navy medallion.  Carpet has habrash throughout, as visible in catalogue illustration.  Carpet is not brittle or dry rotted.  There is repair in the major border at one end, and a smaller repaired area at/near juncture of major/minor borders at the same end.  On reverse of carpet at one corner, there are faint stenciled (?) numerals (?) inventory numbers (?) NOT visible on front of carpet.  At the inner red minor border,  in one area, there are  two worn areas with exposed foundation.  The carpet has a short clip.  Much of the carpet has full pile.  There is visible wear in parts of carpet, predominantly in parts of the brick -colored field.  In these low areas, there may be some tinting.
