Summary Good Condition

Assessor Christina Beebe

Notes Paper shows very slight overall yellowing There is a horizontal piece of Scotch tape in the middle of the proper left edge. It looks like the poster may have been adhered to the mat and some pieces of adhesive are sticking out, but it could be that the edges are just heavily taped under the mat. Bottom 1/3 shows overall losse crinkling.
