POSTER CONDITION & GRADING
Good to Very Good, linen backed. Prior to linen backing the poster was in Fair to Good condition. There were some yellowing and dirt, stains, and smudges throughout the poster plus the original folds were somewhat more pronounced than usual, possibly from having been stored folded at one time. There was residual brown tape and marks left from that brown tape. The poster was extensively cleaned and some restoration carried out the title lettering and the white areas. The poster was expertly backed and the original flaws are not very noticeable at all and the poster now displays really well!
