This original poster is rolled and in good C7 condition. Unfortunately, this poster was heavily creased while in rolled position; most likely due to improper storage techniques. This previous mishandling also resulted in some quality concerns: a small chip missing from bottom margin toward the right corner, crease separation on last crease near top right corner, pin holes, a 2″ vertical and 1″ horizontal tear in top-margin towards the right; and chip missing from top left margin near corner. We highly recommend that this poster be Linen Backed to preserve the poster’s beautiful colors and original condition while virtually eliminating the wrinkling, tears, and other quality remarks mentioned above. Please contact us for this service, it is an extra fee.
Condition C7. For Sale $175
