This is just a cosmetic imperfection. It can't affect the sound in any way because it's only a decorative cover. They just peel off over time which is usual thing for them. It won't be visible if speakers used with the grilles on. Please ask if you want to see anything in details.
I will try to make more close-up photos upon request. The speakers are fully working.They come exactly as you see them on the photo without front grilles or any other accessories, but please do let me know if you need them. I might be able to get them at a little extra charge. Not many of DM2 left since the times when John Bowers and his team builded their name. The sound of DM2 speakers were outlined back in 1973 as "the nearest to truth than most other versions". You can find many informed opinions on DM2 if you google.
They will be packed very carefully using multilayer cardboard for safe travel all around the world. I might include some wires free of charge subject to availability. Please make sure you ask. Also please feel free to contact with any questions.
