What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had some tiny scuffs in the center of the "C" of "ROCKY" (in the vertical fold) and tiny paper loss at the crossfolds. Otherwise, the poster was in nice condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
