The interior is finished in a burnt orange color with very fine black speckles.
This mug has no chips, cracks, scratches, stains or crazing.
The letter "i" in taking on the front surface is missing a bit of the black within the etched surface. This occurred because the letter i is not completely etched in that spot. The F and s in friends on the front surface and s in Friends on the rear surface have similar spots. Please see the photos.
The year on the bottom surface is partially missing, please see the last photo.
