This mirror is in excellent condition. Using an infinity collimator the focal length was determined to be almost exactly 12 inches, yielding a radius of curvature of 24 inches. The glass is 1.375 inches thick at the margins.

There are also some very fine scratches that can be seen when using a strong magnifier. Otherwise the coating appears to be excellent..
