This work is in overall good condition taking its age into account. The medium is stable. Minor deckling is present along the extreme edges; however, this is more than likely inherent to the nature of the paper. The paper is hinged to the mat along each edge. Faint discoloration is present and borders the edges, this is more than likely due to a previous mat board.
