Owner of #702 here.
I'm a little disappointed with the craftsmanship/handling of this miraculous tome. While I absolutely admire it, there seems to be issues, for me anyway.
Issues when opened from box:
1: The wax seal for the Catechism of the Xenos fell off the paper it was attached to, melting the glue to get it back on failed.
2: The bottom front cover of the book itself has the "leather" seems to be loose or coming off a little.
3: There are some very noticeable scrapes on the silver lining of the pages.
4: The metal case hangs open a little, but I'm assuming that this cannot be helped (probably due to the design of the case or the belt buckle pushing on the inside of the case).
Issue after several weeks of ownership, careful reading, and never dropping, slamming, etc
1. The back of the book and the spine is coming off of the rest of the book, glue is exposed and pulling the back page with it (the page holding the map, facing the ad)
Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy what I have gotten; however the care into making this seems to be a little lacking, quality-wise. I don't thing there should be parts falling off when they are supposed to be glued on. Has anyone else had any complaints about it?
