Please know that at the stage of firing him, Alexander got some small cracks on the inside part of his legs and arms. They are only obvious at close inspection and when his clothes are taken off, which should not be done unless it is to wash them very occasionally. These cracks have stayed the same size for ten years so they should not get any bigger and, due to the internal brass frame of the doll, will not cause any further damage to the doll. No discount will be offered because of these imperfections.
