Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a light paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (it means that the poster must be handled carefully, as the backing does not give it much added strength, but it is similar to having an unrestored poster, and yet it has been properly preserved). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds and very minor fold wear. There were some tiny pairs of staple holes around the edges of the poster, with one tiny pair in Harlow's hair, three tiny pinholes in Harlow's neck and shoulder, and one in the top of her dress (they are so tiny that they are truly not noticeable except on the absolute closest of inspection!). There were a few very faint smudges around the edges of the image. There was surface paper loss in parts of the top edge of the top blank border, but it was very slight and not very noticeable at all. Overall, the poster was in very good to fine condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was given to a great museum restorer! They paperbacked the poster, de-acidifying it, and mounting it to a very thin paper backing, and doing the absolute minimum amount of restoration to the poster, leaving alone the super tiny pinholes, the faint smudges around the edges of the image, and the surface paper loss in the top edge of the top blank border. The poster looks incredible, and there is no sense of restoration at all, and it has had the best possible museum conservation (it cost over $1,000 to do, and that was many years ago!). The defects in this poster were truly very minor, and they have been restored in the most minimal way, but to the finest museum standards, and the poster looks fantastic!
