Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had small paper loss in the left half of the bottom horizontal fold and some creases, scuffs, and tiny dots of paper loss on parts of other foldlines. There were staple holes, small stains, and a few tears around the edges, with some scuffs scattered in the image. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
