The throat panel has a repair on the top left corner and a plugged hole on the two side pieces. The dial door has a repair at the hinge. Bottom tablet is a replacement. Throat tablet is original with some restoration of the background. The repainted dial has turned yellow on the outer edge and is likely not original as it is slightly larger than the head.
