Before the poster was linen backed, it was in good original rolled condition with only 2 quality concerns that we addressed: a 4″ tear starting from top middle margin, going through the “F” in France, and down to top portion of the lantern and a travel agency snipe sticker (1 x 5″) at the bottom middle of poster (just below the blue horizontal bars) was carefully and completely removed, some uneven color fading persists. Please click on image to zoom-in and review this beautiful poster for yourself.
