Notes Unsure if foam backing is archival, it is not original. Stamps are loose at lower right corner. At right edge the stamps are curled backward. Stamps are loose at left edge about 4.5" from top edge. The stampes are not perfectly aligned some go over the edge at right side, and top edge near right corner. On back there is a large brown stain at lower left edge near corner.
