Condition: good to very good. The poster had creases, tears, and small areas of paper loss across the top two foldlines and down the top half of the vertical foldline. There was paper loss at the top two crossfolds. There were creases and surface scuffs across the bottom of the faces of the Stooges at center. There were tiny tears in the bottom half of the vertical foldline and separation and creases across the bottom foldline. There were creases, smudges, tiny tears, and very tiny paper loss around the edges of the poster. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see some signs of the restoration, even from a distance.
