This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals some very light signs of wear in isolated places along the edges, and a small rub mark towards the upper right corner. Further extremely close inspection reveals a few isolated media accretions in places, and a small drip mark towards the centre of the lower right quadrant. There are a few tiny surface irregularities to the lower edge; two approximately 30 cm. from the lower left corner and one approximately 70 cm. from the lower right corner, which do not fluoresce under ultraviolet light. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
