Summary fair

Assessor BN

Notes Frame, glass, matting and tape are not original or archival; needs attention. The paper on the left is very yellowed and discolored. At lower edge left and upper edge right there are pieces of cellophane tape which is yellowed. Small stains around edges. The ticket at right has blue check mark which is probably original from the event, but is smudged. Cellophane tape on edges. On frame, white scuff marks. On back, masking tape is brittle. On left edge and lower left corner the tape is loose from frame. At upper left quadrant there is a vertical cut in the cardboard.
