The arms have a square peg on the arms and holes in the shoulders; they remove easily. The legs, which originally were nailed on, have been fastened on with screws for stability and easier removal for shipping and reattachment. There is some wood loss on the front and back of the hat brim and on the base below the left leg; otherwise it is in good condition.
