Approximately 12" long x 4.25" wide x 3.375" high, precision made of high strength aluminum with a white epoxy coating for durability.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
