As with all Mexican posters we strongly recommend linen backing as the paper used for these posters especially for those dating from the sixties or earlier is thin and prone to tearing and must be de-acidified for long term preservation. This poster has been linen backed and was in very good condition prior to backing. There were two chips missing on the lower and left margin that have been filled. The chip on the lower margin reached 1/2″ into the image.
Condition C7. Sold for $225. Linen Backed
