Someone asked if the enamel was damaged. I understand my photos may not be the best.
I wiped down the enamel at the center of the box with a damp cloth and took another picture. There was some dust and some reflection on it before. As you can see, the center enamel is in very good condition.Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
