Summary Very good

Notes The sign shows some signs of wear. There are four holes punctured on the cardboard from where the sign was fixed onto something. The bottom edges show some wear . There are two fold marks to the left of and on the word "Butter". There is a small tear on the bottom part of the sign. There is also a partial tear on the tip of the knife which creates a fold. There are a few dirt spots on the yellow portion, and a dark spot next to the little boy on the right corner. Back has some minor dirt spots.
