The board is sound.
There are minor protrusions scattered across the surface, only visible upon close inspection. There are one or two minor surface abrasions along the top edge and a small light surface scratch near the upper right corner. There is some surface dirt in places along the right hand edge and in the lower right corner; the work may benefit from a light clean. Otherwise the work appears in good overall condition.
Ultraviolet light reveals no apparent signs of retouching.
