Condition Grade and Condition Report:
Grade: B+, conservation-backed on linen.
This poster has been professionally linen backed by a previous owner, as it had some rather worn folds. There is also a more recent small surface scuff near the word "Day". It is backed onto Linen with a 2cm linen border left on to prevent future damage to the poster-edge and make future framing easier. The poster is in excellent restored condition and ready for framing. Our regular restorers would recommend Conservation Framing, as old paper has the same requirements as other valuable collectables. More detailed photos available on request.
