The collection is housed in a large, heavy-duty book that measures 15" x 12" x 3 and weighs 14 pounds. There are six pages that hold the medals with each page focusing on a certain type of Michelangelo's sculptures. This set offered for sale is in mint condition. Each medal looks exactly as it did when struck at the Franklin Mint with no patina, scratches, or toning. See my many other listings for Proof sets, coins and medals and medal sets.
