Overall this tripod is in excellent condition and everything works smoothly as it should. There are a few marks on it from use–please see pictures:
  • there is a small ding near the head of the tripod
  • each leg has scratches at the bottom from being used
  • the feet are slightly worn
  • the legs have slight rub marks from extending and shortening the legs, not very noticeable, but they are there
Here is a description and specs on the tripod:

The Manfrotto 057 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Geared Column is a heavy-duty tripod that's intended for use with video cameras and large still cameras. The tripod's geared center column provides maximum precision when you're setting the camera position. The column has a non-rotating, three-faceted design for increased system stability. You can unscrew the center-post collar, remove the center column, and attach the collar directly to the included low-angle adapter (through the chassis) to enable extremely low-angle shooting. With this method the 057 tripod can achieve a minimum height of 9.0".
