In good condition. With pinholes along the edges of the sheet, a tiny loss of paper in the upper right. A few small tears and creases along the edges, as well as with isolated spots of minimal color abrasion. However, the structures and scratches in the image are inherent to the production process and thus part of the work's nature.
