Mug has yearstamp 1997 so it is earlier production. Mug has been used quite a bit, since there is alot slim scratches. Scratches will disappear well into the white background.
Lower part of the handle has a crack around it, and the handle moves slightly and makes a crackling sound when pulled away from the mug itself. Vertically and horizontally if you move the handle, it doesnt move or make sound.
Watch the pictures carefully before doing the order. We pack the mugs carefully using renewable packing materials.
