There is minor pitting primarily on the bottom and rims the actual eating surfaces are in very good condition. I have taken pictures of each of the platters eating surfaces individually so please look carefully.There are no chips or cracks. There is plate loss commensurate with age and use. All six of the plates have been cleaned using only electrolysis and elbow grease (we never use lye or chemicals on our cookware). After a thorough cleaning the plates received their first seasoning with crisco (all over, including the chromed parts) giving them a lovely copper glow. A wonderful, rare addition for your collection. The item "6 Rare Griswold Chrome Cast Iron Steak Platter Plates P/N 851 Clean & Seasoned" is in sale since Saturday, November 20, 2021.
